Focuses on the court's reaction to state and federal legislation on Bill of Rights freedoms, with special attention to the explosion of civil rights cases from the early 1940s to the present. Highlights the Warren Court as it confronts the issues of race, gender, and religion. "This is a watershed time in the court's history," says Joan Biskupic, journalist and author. "You have World War II. You have McCarthyism. You have the Cold War. You have the civil rights struggles. There's tension between national security, national identity, free speech, individual rights, and it falls into the lap of these nine justices to sort it all out."
