With the recent N R A decision still ""in the news"", this is a timely book and its obvious market, among your legal profession, should be increased by many other readers interested in the application of past Supreme Court history to current problems. The outstanding decisions of the past, with full text of the opinions handed down, and in many cases, of the minority opinions as well, are given in full, with an introductory presentation of each case, and its importance as establishing a precedent or setting a new standard. The gold clause and the N R A decision bring the subject up to date. It makes surprisingly good reading, and throws a good deal of light on our history from a new angle. An essential book for public libraries.
