Beschreibung:

Shows how Supreme Court dissenting opinions later came to prevail in redefining the Constitution.
Although the Supreme Court is the ultimate authority for determining what the Constitution means, it has not always effected final decisions in its majority rulings. The law has, rather, changed and developed over time in many important areas. Lively focuses attention on several dissenting opinions which were crucial to the eventual definition of basic rights and liberties. He examines not only the opinions but the context in which they arose and the personalities behind them, tracing the influence of the dissents on the development of modern law. The work affords keen insights into how basic law--far from being a given, static code--has evolved.
