"Supreme Quotes" is the first popular reference book to collect the quotations used by the Supreme Court Justices to make their opinions more interesting. Among those quoted are Humphrey Bogart, Albert Camus, Lewis Carroll, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Robert Frost, Clark Gable, Joseph Heller, John Lennon, Herman Melville, George Orwell, William Shakespeare, Alfred Tennyson, Henry David Thoreau, Mark Twain, Kurt Vonnegut, and others. For each entry, "Supreme Quotes" summarizes the context in which the quote was used to crystallize an important legal point. The topics blend contemporary culture with scholarly ideas. By gathering the most interesting quotes as selected by the Justices themselves, "Supreme Quotes" appeals to those with even a casual interest in Supreme Court opinions. "Supreme Quotes" also offers the reader an approachable method to learn about complex subjects. Since the Justices selected each quote to illustrate the nub of an important dispute, the collection offers an engaging way to learn about the underlying subject matter.--Publisher.
