MEDIA REVIEWS
"Timothy S. Huebner . . . has produced a strong addition to the ABC-CLIO Supreme Court Handbooks series . . . The brevity of The Taney Court: Justices, Rulings, and Legacy makes it an excellent introduction for students and other interested readers." - Journal of Southern History
"By putting the cases into historical context rather than historical events into the context of the cases, Huebner presents an impartial review of the judgments passed on Taney's impact. This approach itself is a valuable educational tool to teach students who come to the subject of Taney with opinions already set . . . recommended for high school, undergraduate, and public library collections." - American Reference Books Annual
"An excellent, clear, and fair account of the tenure of Supreme Court Chief Justice Roger Taney . . . Highly recommended. General readers and upper-division undergraduates and above." - Choice
