The early Supreme Court, which first convened in 1790, was so ill-esteemed that its justices frequently resigned in favor of other pursuits. In this fascinating book, a renowned legal scholar--winner of the ABA's Silver Gavel Award--gives a marvelously readable account of our nation's highest court.
