The Supreme Court's History of Comforting the Comfortable and Afflicting the Afflicted

By Ian Millhiser. This scathing indictment examines the history of the Supreme Court through the eyes of the everyday people who have suffered most from its decisions. Providing a contrarian viewpoint grounded in history and law, the author recounts this venerated institution's mistreatment of workers, minorities, women, voters, and other powerless groups, asserting that the Court's tendency to seize power for itself and protect the wealthy and elite has bent the arc of history away from justice. Grades 9 and up. Index. Source notes. Nation Books. 351 pages. ©2015.
