Supreme Inequality: The Supreme Court's Fifty-Year Battle for a More Unjust America Reviews

  • Miguel
    Recent discussions on the left about packing the court at first sound extreme and bound to fail (after all, whats to stop a subsequent future conservative president to packing the court even more in the opposite ideological direction?) yet after reading Supreme Inequality it gives one a sense of wh...
  • Dan Cotter
    This is an important book about the Supreme Court and how it has over the last fifty years unwound some of the forward progress of the Warren Court.

  • Joseph Stieb

He surveys this in discrimination cases, electoral law, campaign finance, corporate rights, labor law, poverty, and criminal justice, among others. In each case he shows how...
