Jeffrey Toobin

The nine: inside the secret world of the Supreme Court. Doubleday, c2007

KF8748.T66 2007

 

Jeffrey Toobin reveals the complex dynamic among the nine people who decide the law of the land. Based on exclusive interviews with justices themselves, The Nine tells the story of the Court through personalities—from Anthony Kennedy's overwhelming sense of self-importance to Clarence Thomas's well-tended grievances against his critics to David Souter's odd nineteenth-century lifestyle. There is also the behind-the-scenes story of Bush v. Gore—and Sandra Day O'Connor's fateful breach with George W. Bush, the president she helped place in office.
