Synopsis :

Praise for the previous edition:
"Recommended."--Choice

"An excellent source for beginning researchers...unbiased...The discussion of the case's significance and its implications will be useful for students..."--School Library Journal

Through its interpretations of the Constitution and Bill of Rights, the Supreme Court issues decisions that shape American law, define the functioning of government and society, and address the most important issues of the day. No court in the country can overturn Supreme Court rulings. Famous cases like Roe v. Wade, Plessy v. Ferguson, Dred Scott v. John F.A. Sanford, and Miranda v. Arizona are among the most important decisions made by the court, but many others have also had a profound impact on the American way of life.
