Description
From renowned political theorist James MacGregor Burns, an incisive critique of the overreaching power of an ideological Supreme CourtFor decades, Pulitzer Prize-winner James MacGregor Burns has been one of the great masters of the study of power and leadership in America. InPacking the Court, he turns his eye to the U.S. Supreme Court, an institution that he believes has become more powerful, and more partisan, than the founding fathers ever intended. In a compelling and provocative narrative, Burns reveals how the Supreme Court has served as a reactionary force in American politics at critical moments throughout the nation's history, and concludes with a bold proposal to rein in the court's power.
