And as in all Oxford Companions, the contributors combine scholarship with engaging insight, giving us a sense of the personality and the inner workings of the Court. They examine everything from the wanderings of the Supreme Court (the first session was held on the second floor of the Royal Exchange Building in New York City, and the Court at times has met in a Congressional committee room, a tavern, a rented house, and finally, in 1935, its own building), to the Jackson-Black Feud and the clouded resignation.

Here is an encyclopedia of the Supreme Court--exactly the kind of sourcebook that students, teachers, and librarians need to comlplement the available material about the history and current operations of the Court. This authoritative and comprehensive treatment includes: * biographical sketches of all 107 justices * detailed discussions of 100 landmark Supreme Court cases * concepts of constitutional law * legal terms and phrases associated with the Court's operations * procedures and practices in the daily operations of the Court * essays on key topics and issues in American constitutional law * excerpts from notable Supreme Court opinions * tables of terms of Supreme Court justices The essay on current constitutional issues (abortion rights, affirmative action, censorship, school prayer, libel, and employment discrimination) and essays that illuminate procedural topics (the right to a trial, the right to counsel, and protection against self-incrimination) demonstrate the relationships of the Court to the lives and concerns of individuals in American society. A complete index and table of justices are included. In an easy-to-use alphabetical format, with extensive cross-referencing, suggestions for further reading, and many photographs and other illustrations, The Young Oxford Companion to the Supreme Court of the United States is an invaluable and ready reference for students, teachers, and librarians.
