The Case Against the Supreme Court (DISCONTINUED)

By Erwin Chemerinsky.

Chemerinsky states: Almost forty years ago, he decided to go to law school because of his belief in that law was the most powerful tool for social change. The Supreme Court he says was the institution in society that existed to stop discrimination and to protect people's rights. As one of the country's leading constitutional experts Erwin has been teaching, writing, and litigating about constitutional law for over thirty years. 

Both historically and in the present, the Supreme Court has largely been a failure. In this devastating book, Chemerinsky shows how, case by case, for over two centuries, the Supreme Court has been far more likely to uphold government abuses of power than to stop it. We all share the perception that the Court is objective and decides questions based on the law separate from the ideology of the justices. In actuality, the Court is made up of fallible men and women who inevitably base decisions on their own biases and prejudices.
