What do bakers' working hours have to do with abortion rights? What role did the Supreme Court play in sanctioning racism, in moving power away from the states toward the federal government, in banning religion from the public arena? How did the Supreme Court become supreme? These questions, and others like them, are answered in this engaging exploration of seven Supreme Court decisions that had a major impact on the shaping of the United States of America. Federal district court judge Ted Stewart brings expert analysis to his discussion of these court cases, raising the important question of whether the Founders of this country intended for a handful of unelected officials to have the kind of power wielded by the Supreme Court today. Regardless of where they find themselves on the political spectrum, readers will be fascinated by these glimpses into the inner workings of the judicial system. The author leaves the reader to draw his or her own conclusions as to whether the Supreme Court should possess the power it does, but his perspective helps us recognize that the far-reaching potential consequences of individual court decisions is a vital step in understanding how our country works.

"A stunning work of history."—Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of No Ordinary Time and Team of Rivals Beginning in 1935, the Supreme Court's conservative majority left much of FDR's agenda in ruins. The pillars of the New Deal fell in short succession. It was not just the New Deal but democracy itself that stood on trial. In February 1937, Roosevelt struck back with an audacious plan to expand the Court to fifteen justices—and to "pack" the new seats with liberals who shared his belief in a "living" Constitution.

Few institutions in the world are credited with initiating and confounding political change on the scale of the United States Supreme Court. The Court is uniquely positioned to enhance or inhibit political reform, enshrine or dismantle social inequalities, and expand or suppress individual rights. Yet despite claims of victory from judicial activists and complaints of undemocratic lawmaking from the Court's critics, numerous studies of the Court assert that it wields little real power. This book examines the nature of Supreme Court power by identifying conditions under which the Court is successful at altering the behavior of state and private actors. Employing a series of longitudinal studies that use quantitative measures of behavior outcomes across a wide range of issue areas, it develops and supports a new theory of Supreme Court power.

I have seen and experienced in a most dramatic way the amazing power of our God, as well as received His miraculous transformation from a life of alcoholism, from which I had tried to liberate myself on my own without any success for many years. As a consequence, I was on the brink of losing the most valuable gift of them all, my family, my freedom and my health. However, thanks to the love and mercy of the only Almighty God, who is in fact an infinite source of restoration for us all, my life has been rescued and healed for good. Juan F. Burciaga
