Description
 
From 1970 to 1994, Justice Harry Blackmun (1908-1999) wrote numerous landmark Supreme Court (SC) decisions, including Roe v. Wade, & participated in the most contentious debates of his era -- all behind closed doors. This book draws back the curtain on Americaís most private branch of govít. & reveals the backstage story of the SC through the eyes & writings of this extraordinary justice. Shows us the SC as a human institution, where 9 very smart & very opinionated lawyers seek to make decisions & bring others around to their point of view, over the contentious cases that came their way: the Pentagon Papers, Roe v. Wade, the Nixon tapes, Bakke v. Regents of the Univ. of Calif., Planned Parenthood v. Casey, etc. Photos.
