Online Read ჰ ePUB By Jeffrey Toobin ᅕ It s not laws or constitutional theory that rule the High Court, argues this absorbing group profile, but quirky men and women guided by political intuition New Yorker legal writer Toobin The Run of His Life The People v O.J Simpson surveys the Court from the Reagan administration onward, as the justices wrestled with abortion, affirmative action, the death penalty, gay rights and church state separation Despite a Court dominated by Republican appointees, Toobin paints not a conservative revolution but a period of intractable moderation The real power, he argues, belonged to supreme swing voter Sandra Day O Connor, who decided important cases with what Toobin sees as an almost primal attunement to a middle of the road public consensus By contrast, he contends, conservative justices Rehnquist and Scalia ended up bitter old men, their rigorous constitutional doctrines made irrelevant by the moderates compromises The author deftly distills the issues and enlivens his narrative of the Court s internal wranglings with sharp thumbnail sketches Anthony Kennedy the vain bloviator, David Souter the Thoreauvian ascetic and editorials inept and unsavory is his verdict on the Court s intervention in the 2000 election His savvy account puts the supposedly cloistered Court right in the thick of American life A final chapter and epilogue on the 20062007 term, with new justices Roberts and Alito, was unavailable to PW Sept 18 Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.The Nine is a welcome addition to the spate of recent Supreme Court histories see Jan Crawford Greenburg s Supreme Conflict, 1 2 May June 2007 Informative and authoritative, Jeffrey Toobin s account draws on exclusive interviews with the principals one critic cited a possible breach of secrecy and offers colorful anecdotes about the members of the Court The most important parts of the book explore Sandra Day O Connor s critical swing votes, Clinton s impeachment hearings, and the Court s role in Bush v Gore The tragedy, Toobin concludes, was not that it led to Bush s victory, but the inept and unsavory manner that the justices exercised their power Only David J Garrow, a Supreme Court historian, faulted Toobin s debatable opinions and disdain for various justices Well written, though chronologically disjointed, The Nine is, overall, a timely and important examination of the Court s past and its future Copyright 2004 Phillips Nelson Media, Inc.
