520    Beginning with the debates over judicial power in the 
       Constitutional Convention of 1787 to controversial rulings
       on slavery, racial segregation, free speech, school prayer,
       abortion, and gay rights, constitutional scholar Peter 
       Irons offers a penetrating look at the highest court in 
       the land. Here are revealing sketches of every justice 
       from John Jay to Samuel Alito, as well as portraits of 
       such legal giants as John Marshall, Oliver Wendell Holmes,
       Earl Warren, and Thurgood Marshall. Astute, provocative, 
       and extremely accessible, A People's History of the 
       Supreme Court illuminates and pays tribute to a system of 
       justice that both reflects and parallels our country's 
       remarkable legal history. The revised edition has been 
       updated to include recent landmark cases and changes on 
       the bench
