Five Chiefs: A Supreme Court Memoir by John Paul Stevens

Description

When he resigned in June 2010, Justice John Paul Stevens was once the third-longest-serving Supreme Courtroom justice in American history. As a attorney and on the court, he labored with five chief justices: as a law clerk all through Fred Vinson's tenure, a practising attorney when Earl Warren was once chief, a circuit judge and junior justice all over Warren Burger's term, a recent colleague of William Rehnquist, and a colleague of current Chief Justice John Roberts. FIVE CHIEFS is his non-public account of the workings of the court from his personal experiences with these males, and the controversial circumstances they deliberated over, from freedom of speech and affirmative action to capital punishment and sovereign immunity.

Written with humility and beauty, and full of attention-grabbing anecdotes, FIVE CHIEFS is an unprecedented and historically significant have a look at the perfect courtroom in the United States.
