In The Rehnquist Court and the Constitution, Tinsley Yarbrough provides a comprehensive look at today's Supreme Court Justices and their record--a study all the more valuable for the Court's mixed decisions and hard-to-categorize course.An accomplished biographer, Yarbrough offers incisive portraits of the nine who now sit on the high bench, and tellingly reviews their nomination hearings. He also explores the workings of the Court, ranging from the selection and role of the clerks to the work load (including theend-of-term "June crunch") and assignment of opinions. But the heart of the book is a systematic exploration of the Court's record in such fields as government power, economic regulation, and criminal justice. In decision after decision, the author discusses the various justices' opinions,arguments, and legal theories; he also offers his own analysis (including a sharp critique of the decision to allow the Paula Jones lawsuit to move forward). Like many writers on the Rehnquist Court, Yarbrough finds a general continuity with the past, shaded by a conservative outlook (especially inmatters of criminal justice and affirmative action), but he identifies a significant departure in its rulings on economic regulation. Since 1937, he writes, the Supreme Court had generally adopted an expansive view of federal power over economic matters; the Rehnquist Court has reversed that trend.The Rehnquist Court has not launched an all-out assault on the Warren Court's precedents, as many conservatives hoped, but as Yarbrough shows it has embarked on important new departures. Thoughtful, wide-ranging, intelligently written, this book will stand as the finest study of the RehnquistCourt for years to come.… (mer)

I’m not exactly sure what I was looking for in this book but I finished a lot of it by skimming repetitive, long, dry sections. About all I came away with is that the Rehnquist court has not begun an all out assault on everything liberals hold dear. However, they are frequently whittling away at important protections we enjoy as citizens, less frequently acting as buffers against the tyranny of the majority from Congress and the chutzpah of the executive. Also, as the Rehnquist court had another five years to go at the time of publication (2000) I think Yarbrough missed out on a significant chunk of the court’s work. What may not have been an all out assault still slowly and inexorably is reaching the same position.
