I'm teaching a course next semester for a small (but wide-ranging in terms of majors/experiences) class of genuinely bright undergraduates that will incorporate a week-long trip to the Library of Congress to work in the papers of the justices housed there. Because of the diverse backgrounds of the students, I intend to do something of a short course on the history/development of the Supreme Court for the first few weeks of class.
My question is this: What short(ish) books on the history of the Court would you suggest? I've used Schwartz's A HISTORY OF THE SUPREME COURT and McCloskey/Levinson in the past, but a couple of the kids in the class will have read them already. Does anyone have any other suggestions?
I would gratefully appreciate any suggestions on the list or to me personally. Thanks.
