Summary: Peter Irons introduces 16 Americans who had the courage and perseverance to pursue a belief in their constitutional rights all the way to the Surpreme Court. Their cases, decided by the Surpreme Court between 1940 and 1986, raise four major issues of our time -- religion, race, protest, and privacy. This book contains accounts of sixteen plaintiffs in civil rights cases that were examined by the United States Supreme Court. "They range from J.D. Shelley, a bla
