Washington Post Notable Nonfiction Book of the Year

A revelatory look at the Warren Burger Supreme Court finds that it was not moderate or transitional, but conservative--and it shaped today's constitutional landscape. It is an important book.a powerful corrective to the standard narrative of the Burger Court (The New York Times Book Review).

When Richard Nixon campaigned for the presidency in 1968 he promised to change the Supreme Court. With four appointments to the court, including Warren E. Burger as the chief justice, he did just that. In 1969, the Burger Court succeeded the famously liberal Warren Court, which had significantly expanded civil liberties and was despised by conservatives across the country.

The Burger Court is often described as a transitional court between the Warren Court and the Rehnquist and Roberts Courts, a court where little of importance happened. But as this landmark new book (The Christian Science Monitor) shows, the Burger Court veered well to the right in such areas as criminal law, race, and corporate power. Authors Graetz and Greenhouse excavate the roots of the most significant Burger Court decisions and in elegant, illuminating arguments (The Washington Post) show how their legacy affects us today.
