Noah Feldman. Scorpions : the battles and triumphs of FDR's great Supreme Court justices. Twelve, 2010.

KF8744.F45 2010

 

This book discusses four of the Supreme Court Justices appointed by Franklin Roosevelt: Felix Frankfurter, Hugo Black, Robert Jackson, and William Douglas.  The author tells the story of these four great justices and explores their relationship with Roosevelt, with each other, and with the turbulent world of the Great Depression, World War II, and the Cold War. It also serves as a history of the modern Constitution itself.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gary Jeffrey Jacobsohn. Constitutional identity. Harvard University Press, 2010.

K3165.J333 2010

 

In this book the author argues that a constitution acquires an identity through experience, from a mix of the political aspirations and commitments that express a nationís past and the desire to transcend that past.  Using a wide range of examples from countries such as India, Ireland, Israel, and the United States, the author also contends that a constitution is changeable, but resistant to its own destruction, and manifests itself in various ways.
