Summary

A classic collection of essays on great Supreme Court decisions in which twenty leading historians describe landmark cases that have altered the Constitution.

From Chief Justice John Marshall to the present day, from the Dred Scott case to Roe v. Wade, the accounts found in this newly revised edition of Quarrels That Have Shaped the Constitution, which has also been expanded by the addition of five new essays, focus not only on the significance of the decisions themselves but on the personal conflicts that gave the justices the opportunity to act. People of every sort--smugglers and black slaves, bankers and butchers, ferryboat captains, rebels, sweated workers and great tycoons--make up the cast of characters in these dramas.
