Book Description

This title offers a fascinating, unique history of the Supreme Court as seen from the perspective of "The New York Times". "The New York Times on the Supreme Court", the second volume in the new imprint TimesReference from CQ Press, uses carefully chosen articles from "The Times" to explore the history and influence of the Supreme Court. Author Kenneth Jost provides expert analysis and presents selected news stories, letters to the editor, and Op-Ed essays from the paper to look at the development of the Court and its relationship to the other branches of government and to the states. Later chapters explore key themes - including freedom of ideas, the rights of political participation, equal protection of the law, crime and punishment - and the appropriate major cases, which are accompanied by decision dates, verdicts, and who wrote the majority opinion. "The New York Times on the Supreme Court" is the ideal choice for high school classrooms and media studies courses covering the judicial system and the media's role in American politics.
