Summary
The Supreme Court Justices: Illustrated Biographies, 17892012, Third Edition, provides a single-volume reference profiling every Supreme Court justice from John Jay through Elena Kagan. An original essay on each justice paints a vivid picture of his or her individuality as shaped by family, education, pre-Court career, and the times in which he or she lived. Each biographical essay also presents an overview of the justices jurisprudence, the major cases during his or her tenure, and the justices relationships with the other members of the Court. Essays are arranged in the order of the justices appointments. Lively anecdotes along with portraits, photographs, and political cartoons enrich the text and deepen readers understanding of the justices and the Court. The volume includes an extensive bibliography and is indexed for easy research access
