"Looking beyond the legal issues confronted by the Court, Pratt examines White's efforts to maintain collegiality among the justices, his refusal to use his office to support needed changes in the Court's jurisdiction, and his hesitant guidance of the institution into uncharted legal and constitutional territory. Pratt concludes that White's style of leadership ultimately proved less than adequate to meet the challenges of the tumultuous era."--BOOK JACKET.
