Booklist Review

Like the first [BKL Mr 15 91], the second set of editors Harrison and Gilbert's judicious trimmings of major Supreme Court decisions and dissents includes opinions on a decade of concerns. The 10 are slavery (the Dred Scott decision), women's suffrage, Japanese Americans' World War II concentration-camp internment, Bible reading in public schools, book banning, the rights of the criminally accused (the Miranda decision), the death penalty, homosexuality, offensive speech, and the right to die. Although the books' format continues to be bare bones (hot off the laser printer, perhaps?), the readability that slimming down these legal documents confers is remarkable. ~--Ray Olson
