The nine : inside the secret world of the Supreme Court

by Jeffrey Toobin. Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group. 2007.
369 pages.

New Yorker legal writer Jeffrey Toobin's profile of the U.S. Supreme Court from the Reagan administration onward. According to Washington Post reviewer Edward Lazarus (author of Closed Chambers), "Toobin deserves credit for adding his influential voice to the chorus seeking to debunk this myth. As he observes, the justices are chosen through a political process for political reasons, and the decisions they reach are inevitably influenced by their ideological commitments, personal experiences and personalities."
