The priestly tribe the Supreme Court's image in the American mind by Barbara A Perry ( )
14 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2,627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Perry illuminates the Supreme Court's unique advantages in sustaining a noble public image by its stewardship of the revered Constitution, its constant embrace of the rule of law, the justices' life tenure, its symbols of impartiality and integrity, and a resolute determination to keep its distance from the media. She argues that the Court has bolstered these advantages to avoid traps that have marred Congressional and presidential images, and she demonstrates how the Court has escaped the worst of media coverage
Freedom and the Court; civil rights and liberties in the United States by Henry Julian Abraham ( Book )
17 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 1,403 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since its original publication in 1967, this book has become the standard text on civil liberties law. This edition covers Supreme Court decisions through 2003 and addresses essential questions of how to reconcile civil liberties--especially personal privacy--with national security in the aftermath of 9/11. The authors portray the intriguing human stories behind landmark constitutional law cases as they focus on fundamental issues of individual rights relating to freedom of religion, separation of church and state, freedom of expression, due process, and political, racial, and gender equality. This edition delineates pathbreaking developments by the Rehnquist Court in civil rights regarding abortion, affirmative action, capital punishment, computers and the Internet, and the Americans with Disabilities Act. It also analyzes the narrowly divided Court's controversial return to a more state-centered jurisprudence and to certain pre-New Deal, pro-business commitments. The book's coverage ranges widely to consider criminal rights in light of the 1990s war on crime, free speech cases involving everything from campaign finance to nude dancing, and equal protection pertaining not only to minority litigation but also to the Bush v. Gore decision--whose first oral argument (for the Palm Beach County case) the authors attended at the U.S. Supreme Court. It also explains the ongoing impact of the Court's invalidation of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993, and it continues to include comprehensive charts for cases involving freedom of religion

Jacqueline Kennedy : first lady of the New Frontier by Barbara A Perry ( Book )
4 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Noting how Jackie's celebrity and devotion to privacy have for years precluded a more serious treatment, Perry's story illuminates Kennedy's immeasurable impact on the institution of the first lady. Perry illustrates the complexities of Jacqueline Bouvier's marriage to John F. Kennedy, and shows how she transformed herself from a reluctant political wife to an effective, confident presidential partner. Perry is especially illuminating in tracing the first lady's mastery of political symbolism and imagery, along with her use of television and state entertainment to disseminate her work to a global audience."

3 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Monocrystalline thin films of A1N and GaN have been deposited on vicinal alpha(6H)-SiC(0001) wafers via gas-source MBE and cold-wall metalorganic (MO) CVD and extensively investigated via high-resolution TEM. Elemental metal sources combined with activated nitrogen generated using an ECR plasma were employed in the MBE system; triethylgallium, triethylaluminum and ammonia were used in the MOCVD system. The MBE research has also included n-(Si) and p- TYPE(Mg) doping and the creation of p-n junctions. The effects on growth of T, P and MO flux have been investigated in the MOCVD work. Below the critical thickness, A1N only contains threading dislocations emanating from the misfit dislocations; above this thickness, defects parallel to the growth surface greatly increase. The defect density of A1N grown on SiC at 1100 deg C is much lower than that contained in materials deposited at 700 deg C. Deposition of GaN on an A1N buffer layer previously deposited on sapphire or SiC results in a larger number of dislocations parallel to the growth surface. A system for the deposition of InN and its solid solutions which addresses the problems of the low decomposition pressure has also been designed. The feasibility of designing an ammonia cracker cell for the MBE system to provide an alternative source of activated nitrogen is being investigated. microelectronic and optoelctronic device designs have been produced and device related activities including contact studies involving Zn/au and Cr/Au and Au, reactive ion etching and optical characterization have been inundated
