Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The third edition of this biographical dictionary adds four new profiles: Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Associate Justices Samuel A. Alito, Sonia M. Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan (the newest appointee). The single-volume work encompasses 112 chief and associate justices, organized chronologically by their appointments to the highest court in the land. Chief Justice Roberts supplies the foreword and conveys the importance of this collection of essays about the justices' personal lives, legal contributions, and accomplishments throughout their lives. The entries many of which have been revised from the previous edition vary in length from four to five pages and include an updated black-and-white portrait and other illustrations relating to the justices' lives and court cases. The appendix contains a comprehensive listing of all the justices, providing information in a chart format as to who appointed them, length of service, confirmation, and so on. An extensive and revised bibliography and separate suggestions for young readers are included. A detailed index, which includes reference to court cases, completes this volume. This volume would be a worthwhile purchase for middle- and high-school media centers as well as public and academic libraries as a beginning resource about the members of the Supreme Court.--Harless, Carol Sue Copyright 2010 Booklist"
