KIRKUS REVIEW

16 leading historians have contributed an essay apiece dealing with separate Supreme Court cases which have altered the interpretation of the Constitution from the days of John Marshall to those of Earl Warren. Each case gets a recap, legal strategies of the contending lawyers are set forth, the temper of the times is discussed and the effect of the decisions given. An excellent reader for high school and college history courses, even the case titles reflect the urge to catch and hold attention, e.g. -- ""The Case of the Overworked Laundress,"" and ""The Sick Chicken Case.
