This review of The Supreme Court on Trial questions why the work’s tackling the age-old issues of the source of judicial review and its constitutionality is particularly novel or unique from other such examinations. Issue is also taken with Brown v. Boards dominance of such discussion and the book’s poor treatment of the desegregation cases.
