CHOICE Review

In 1985 Currie (University of Chicago) published his rich study, The Constitution in the Supreme Court: The First Hundred Years (CH, Jul'86), which examined decisions of the US Supreme Court affecting the Constitution between 1789 and 1888. He has now ably completed his project with a second volume bringing the study up to 1986. The earlier book was very well received and the new one is every bit its equal. Currie wears his erudition well. His great breadth and depth of learning is never overpowering or stifling. He comments at length on the important decisions that have legal or historical significance, he offers frequent and candid editorials on the members of the Court, and he pauses periodically to insert analytical summations of the era of each Chief Justice and to evaluate the work of the Court during that period. Despite the comprehensive and scholarly nature of Currie's work, it is neither complex nor difficult to read; fully detailed notes are included, along with an index, a table of cases, and other helpful appendixes. The two books are a valuable contribution to the literature of American law. -T. P. Campbell, Northeastern University
