Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

When Earl Warren was appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court in 1953, few Americans imagined that the noted Republican would become the remarkable leader of a Court now recognized as the greatest liberal Court of this century. Here distinguished legal historian Morton Horwitz considers the landmark cases that transformed American law in those postwar years.

Review:

Morton Horwitz's The Warren Court and the Pursuit of Justice is a book for the layperson outlining the changes the Warren Court created in America's civil liberties jurisprudence. While the book is in no sense a polemic, Horwitz assumes the reader shares his view that what the Warren Court wrought was progress, and he criticizes the justices only when they failed to reach liberal results. Justice Byron White would have winced at the way Horwitz characterizes decisions and justices as being simply "liberal" or "conservative," and one could argue that such a politicization is a problem rather than a virtue. But ACLU members and casual students of American legal history will find the book a quick read that touches upon all of the substantial decisions in a critical period of the Supreme Court's life. --Ted Frank
