TV History of US Supreme Court

PBS (Public Broadcasting Service) will broadcast a TV program (on US television channels)  on the history of the US Supreme court. Twohour-long episodes will air on January 31, 2007, and two on February 07, 2007.

 A companion book by Jeffrey Rosen entitled “The Supreme Court: The Personalities and Rivalries That Defined America” has also been published. A web site with more information can be accessed here: http://historyofsupremecourt.org

Recent changes in bench composition and a new chief justice will have a very significant impact on American legal and social systems. This TV program should be useful to people who are interested in assessing what changes are likely to come about.
