Daily Read: Lee Epstein on Linda Greenhouse on the Supreme Court

Lee-EpsteinLee Epstein, writing in Jotwell about Linda Greenhouse's new book, The U.S. Supreme Court: A Very Short Introduction (Oxford University Press 2012), calls it "sophisticated, yet accessible."  Epstein writes:

If your students—undergraduate, graduate, or law—are looking for a brief introduction to the Supreme Court, as mine often are, this is the book to recommend. . . .  As for you Supreme Court junkies: don’t make the mistake of discounting it. I’ve been studying the Court for nearly thirty years and still learned new things, whether small factoids or different ways to think about an institution that, as Greenhouse rightfully notes, continues to “occup[y] a place in the public imagination.”

Lee Epstein (pictured right), co-author of the wonderful The Supreme Court Compendium, as well as a host of other essential books and articles, is not someone whose advice should be taken lightly.
