MEDIA REVIEWS
"This is one in a fourteen-volume series about the various eras of the U.S. Supreme Court . . . Like the other volumes, this one is written by an academic with extensive knowledge and prior public scholarship about the Supreme Court era covered in the book . . . does a good job laying out both the traditional (negative) and revisionist understandings of the Fuller Court." - Choice
"[A] lucidly written reference guide . . . Ely ably sets this court in historical context and makes clear that it was entirely in keeping with the tradition of previous courts and the conservative temper of the Gilded Age . . . This guide will be a valuable resource for academic and large public libraries." - American Reference Books Annual
