Summary
Bestselling author Ted Stewart reveals the complex history of the Supreme Court as told through seven pivotal decisions. These cases originally seemed narrow in scope, but they vastly expanded the interpretation of law. Filled with insight, commentary, and compelling stories of ordinary citizens coming to the judiciary for remedy for the problems of their day, Stewart illustrates the magnitude of the Court's power to interpret the Constitution and decide the law of the land
