"[The author] shows how the Supreme Court is a 'storm center' of political controversy, where personality, politics, law, and justice come together to help determine the course of public policy and shape American society. The eleventh edition features new coverage of events that have dominated the headlines, such as the battle to fill Justice Scalia's seat and the landmark decision for marriage equality in Obergefell v. Hodges."-- Provided by publisher.
