Michael J. Graetz and Linda Greenhouse. The Burger Court and the rise of the judicial right. Simon & Schuster, 2016.

KF8748.G69 2016

 

This book examines the judicial legacy of the Supreme Court under Chief Justice Warren E. Burger, who served from 1969 to 1986. The authors argue that on matters including race, criminal justice, and the rights of corporations, the Burger Court paved the way for the conservative jurisprudence of the Rehnquist and Roberts Courts.   

 

 

 

 

 

David M. Engel. The myth of the litigious society: why we don't sue. The University of Chicago Press, 2016.

KF1251.E54 2016

 

Conventional wisdom has it that Americans are a litigious people, ready to sue at the drop of a hat. In fact, most injury victims rely on their own resources and government programs, not the courts, to pay for treatment. Engel examines what this means for victims and for society as a whole.
