The U.S. Supreme Court : a very short introduction by Linda Greenhouse( )

12 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For 30 years, the author, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist chronicled the activities of the U.S. Supreme Court and its justices as a correspondent for the New York Times. In this introduction, she draws on her knowledge of the court's history and of its written and unwritten rules to show how the Supreme Court really works. She offers an institutional biography of a place and its people, men and women who exercise great power but whose names and faces are unrecognized by many Americans and whose work often appears cloaked in mystery. How do cases get to the Supreme Court? How do the justices go about deciding them? What special role does the chief justice play? What do the law clerks do? How does the court relate to the other branches of government? The author answers these questions by depicting the justices as they confront deep constitutional issues or wrestle with the meaning of confusing federal statutes. Throughout, the author examines many individual Supreme Court cases to illustrate points under discussion, ranging from Marbury v. Madison, the seminal case which established judicial review, to the recent District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), which struck down the District of Columbia's gun-control statute and which was, surprisingly, the first time in its history that the Court issued an authoritative interpretation of the Second Amendment. To add perspective, she also compares the Court to foreign courts, revealing interesting differences. For instance, no other country in the world has chosen to bestow life tenure on its judges
Becoming Justice Blackmun : Harry Blackmun's Supreme Court journey by Linda Greenhouse( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist chronicles the personal transformation of a legendary justice. From 1970 to 1994, Justice Harry A. Blackmun wrote numerous landmark Supreme Court decisions and participated in the most contentious debates of his era--all behind closed doors. Greenhouse was the first print reporter to have access to Blackmun's private and public papers. She has crafted a narrative of Blackmun's years on the Court, showing how he never lost sight of the human beings behind the cases and how he was not afraid to question his own views on such issues as abortion, the death penalty, and sex discrimination. Greenhouse also tells how Blackmun's lifelong friendship with Chief Justice Burger withered in the crucible of life on the nation's highest court, revealing how political differences became personal, even for the country's most respected jurists.--From publisher description
Before Roe v. Wade : voices that shaped the abortion debate before the Supreme Court's ruling( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and Spanish and held by 1,176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Supreme Court's 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade declared that the Constitution protected decisions regarding abortion--but the debate was far from over, continuing to be a political battleground to this day. In the decades since the case was decided, the American debate on abortion has moved away from the issues that the justices confronted more than three decades ago. Bringing to light key documents that illuminate the case and its political context, Before Roe v. Wade looks back and recaptures how the arguments for and against abortion took shape as claims about the meaning of the Constitution--and about how the nation could best honor its commitment to dignity, liberty, equality, and life"--Page 2 of cover
The Burger Court and the rise of the judicial right by Michael J Graetz( Book )

6 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 788 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The magnitude of the Burger Court has been underestimated by historians. When Richard Nixon ran for president in 1968, "Impeach Earl Warren" billboards dotted the landscape, especially in the South. Nixon promised to transform the Supreme Court--and with four appointments, including a new chief justice, he did. This book tells the story of the Supreme Court that came in between the liberal Warren Court and the conservative Rehnquist and Roberts Courts: the seventeen years, 1969 to 1986, under Chief Justice Warren Burger. It is a period largely written off as a transitional era at the Supreme Court when, according to the common verdict, "nothing happened." How wrong that judgment is. The Burger Court had vitally important choices to make: whether to push school desegregation across district lines; how to respond to the sexual revolution and its new demands for women's equality; whether to validate affirmative action on campuses and in the workplace; whether to shift the balance of criminal law back toward the police and prosecutors; what the First Amendment says about limits on money in politics. The Burger Court forced a president out of office while at the same time enhancing presidential power. It created a legacy that in many ways continues to shape how we live today. Written with a keen sense of history and expert use of the justices' personal papers, this book sheds new light on an important era in American political and legal history.--Adapted from dust jacket

Just a journalist : on the press, life, and the spaces between by Linda Greenhouse( Book )

6 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this timely book, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter trains an autobiographical lens on a moment of remarkable transition in American journalism. Just a few years ago, the mainstream press was wrestling with whether labeling waterboarding as torture violated important norms of neutrality and objectivity. Now, major American newspapers regularly call the president of the United States a liar. Clearly, something has changed as the old rules of "balance" and "two sides to every story" have lost their grip. Is the change for the better? Will it last? In Just a Journalist, Linda Greenhouse...who for decades covered the U.S. Supreme Court for The New York Times...tackles these questions from the perspective of her own experience. A decade ago, she faced criticism from her own newspaper and much of journalism's leadership for a speech to a college alumnae group in which she criticized the Bush administration for, among other things, seeking to create a legal black hole at Guantánamo Bay...two years after the Supreme Court itself had ruled that the detainees could not be hidden away from the reach of federal judges who might hear their appeals. One famous newspaper editor expressed his belief that it was unethical for a journalist to vote, because the act of choosing one candidate over another could compromise objectivity. Linda Greenhouse disagrees. Calling herself "an accidental activist," she raises urgent questions about the role journalists can and should play as citizens, even as participants, in the world around them
