Gr 8-12-- John Marshall, Roger Taney, John Harlan, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Louis Brandeis, Charles Evans Hughes, Hugo Black, and Earl Warren are eight Supreme Court justices considered outstanding by this author. Each one is covered in a chapter that outlines his life, early career, appointment, and landmark cases. Readers will find it interesting that so many of the appointments were met with considerable controversy--not unlike those of recent years. In addition to its biographical value, this attractive, well-written book can also be used as a source for information on such cases as ``Brown v. The Board of Education of Topeka,'' ``Dennis v. United States,'' ``Gideon v. Wainwright,'' and the Dred Scott decision. Early civil rights cases are examined and related to current issues. Through the biographical sketches of these justices, a short but clear history of America's highest court is presented. Somber black-and-white photographs are scattered throughout the text. The comprehensive index will be helpful to students doing research. --Valerie Childress, J. W. Holloway Middle School, Whitehouse, TX
