Editorial Reviews

"The clean, graphic layout of the pages and isolated, easy-to-find page headings contribute greatly to readability. In addition to thorough coverage, what sets this volume apart from other reference materials is the liberal use of pertinent photographs, political cartoons, and replicas ofprimary documents, courtroom sketches, woodcut illustrations, flow charts, chronologies, and maps. Three appendixes offer terms of the justices, a schematic of the Supreme Court and visitor's information, and Web sites, while further reading suggestions complete this useful encyclopedia. Theinclusion of so many illustrations makes this a welcome and necessary addition to every high school library. Highly recommended."-Lori Robinson, March 2007 Library Media Conection, starred review
