Closed Chambers by Edward Lazarus

Book Description

When Closed Chambers was first published, it was met with a firestorm of controversy as well as a shower of praise for being the first book to break the code of silence about the inner workings of this country s most powerful court. In this eloquent, trailblazing account, with a new chapter covering Bush v. Gore, Guantanamo, and other recent controversial court decisions, Edward Lazarus, who served as a clerk to Justice Harry Blackmun, presents a searing indictment of a court at war with itself and often in neglect of its constitutional duties. Combining memoir, history, and legal analysis, Lazarus reveals in astonishing detail the realities of what takes place behind the closed doors of the U.S. Supreme Court an institution that through its rulings holds the power to affect the life of every American."
