Salem PreSS The U.S. Supreme Court Volume 1 The U.S. Supreme Court Edited by Thomas Tandy Lewis Volume 1 Two University Plaza, Suite 310 Hackensack NJ 07601 Phone: 201-968-0500 Fax: 201-968-0511 3-VOLUME SET 978-1-68217-180-6 VOLUME 1 978-1-68217-182-0 Second Edition The U.S. Supreme Court, Second Edition “The first edition of this reference was published in 2005, and enough has changed to warrant an update. The essential additions of entries on justices Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, for example, as well as the timely recounting of the 2015 landmark Obergefell v. Hodges same-sex marriage case, make the edition worthwhile, let alone the 100 or so new essays. Written clearly and for a general audience, this set is appropriate for libraries in need of a general resource on the Supreme Court.” —Booklist The U.S. Supreme Court is a comprehensive survey of the history and functions of the Supreme Court. Although it has only nine unelected members, it alone can overturn the actions of every other branch of government, at all levels. There is no other institution quite like the Supreme Court—in the United States or anywhere else in the world. This comprehensive set provides accessible information on all the Supreme Court Justices, articles on key constitutional issues and hundreds of landmark cases. In addition, The U.S. Supreme Court contains essays on types of law, such as administrative law, bankruptcy law, and state constitutions, individual pieces of legislation, clauses and amendments to the U.S. Constitution, specific historical events and eras, along with an explanation of the procedures and mechanics of how the Supreme Court works. Completely updated, this edition of The U.S. Supreme Court provides many new entries, including new analysis of the cases and decisions that affect gun rights, campaign finance, same-sex marriage, class-action lawsuits, and the future of unions, to name just a few. Easy-to-understand entries provide students and researchers with a broad understanding of the power of the Supreme Court and how it functions, alongside an in-depth analysis of the cases and decisions that have shaped American life.
