The Burger Court and the Rise of the Judicial Right

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Tantor Media

Date: April 2017

Duration: 15 hours 11 minutes

Summary:

When Richard Nixon campaigned for the presidency in 1968 he promised to change the Supreme Court. With four appointments to the court, including Warren E. Burger as the chief justice, he did just that. In 1969, the Burger Court succeeded the famously liberal Warren Court, which had significantly expanded civil liberties and was despised by conservatives across the country.

The Burger Court is often described as a 'transitional' court between the Warren Court and the Rehnquist and Roberts Courts, a court where little of importance happened. But as this 'landmark new book' (The Christian Science Monitor) shows, the Burger Court veered well to the right in such areas as criminal law, race, and corporate power. Authors Michael J. Graetz and Linda Greenhouse excavate the roots of the most significant Burger Court decisions and in 'elegant, illuminating arguments' (The Washington Post) show how their legacy affects us today.
