Our nine tribunes: the Supreme Court in modern America
Lusky examines the role of the Supreme Court in today's society. His book serves as a reminder that the Supreme Court's constitutional rulings, which have led us toward an open and self-governing society, have won popular acceptance because they are thought to be based on legal principle rather than the personal preferences of the Justices. In recent years, the Court has announced many new constitutional rules without recognizing the importance of showing that it still considers itself the servant of the law. According to Lusky, unless the Court takes more care to demonstrate the principled basis of its constitutional decisions, it may lose its vital ability to defuse conflicts within society.
