Booklist Review

Clear, concise summaries of more than 300 of the most frequently cited cases decided by the Supreme Court, including the question at issue, final decision and reasoning behind it, votes of the justices, and additional pertinent information. Organized in 38 categories (the presidency, obscenity, aliens, etc.), this work also has a glossary and alphabetical list of cases that add to its usefulness. Though covering more cases than Cushman (above), this book provides only summaries of them while Cushman provides the actual text.
