PACKING THE COURT The Rise of Judicial Power and the Coming Crisis of the Supreme Court

by | Read by Norman Dietz

Contemporary Culture • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Most U.S. citizens of the 21st century take for granted that the Supreme Court will decide the most divisive issues of our day—but this is not what the Constitution's framers had in mind when they wrote that document. The author's argument is that the Court has become too partisan and has misused it power to overturn state and national legislation. Narrator Norman Dietz has a deep, assured voice that lends authority and gravitas to the book. His tone and pacing make it easy to follow the constitutional arguments, and he pauses at crucial intervals to allow listeners to consider Burns's ideas. At times, he sounds like a professor at the lectern, but he's an interesting professor who demands our attention. R.I.G. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2009]
