Until The New Press first published May It Please the
Court in 1993, few Americans knew that every case argued before the
Supreme Court since 1955 had been recorded. The original book-and-tape
set was a revelation to readers and reviewers, quickly becoming a
bestseller and garnering praise across the nation.
Please the Court includes both live recordings and transcripts of
oral arguments in twenty-three of the most significant cases argued
before the Supreme Court in the second half of the twentiethcentury.
This edition makes the recordings available on an MP3 audio CD. Through
the voices of some of the nation’s most important lawyers and
justices, including Thurgood Marshall, Archibald Cox, and Earl Warren,
it offers a chance to hear firsthand our justice system at work, in the
highest court of the land.
Cases included: Gideon v.
Wainwright (right to counsel) Abington School District v.
Schempp (school prayer) Miranda v. Arizona (“the right
to remain silent”) Roe v. Wade (abortion rights) Edwards
v. Aguillard (teaching “creationism”) Regents v.
Bakke (reverse discrimination) Wisconsin v. Yoder (compulsory
schooling for the Amish) Tinker v. Des Moines (Vietnam protest
in schools) Texas v. Johnson (flag burning) New York Times v.
United States (Pentagon Papers) Cox v. Louisiana (civil
rights demonstrations) Communist Party v. Subversive Activities
Control Board (freedom of association) Terry v. Ohio
(“stop and frisk” by police) Gregg v. Georgia
(capital punishment) Cooper v. Aaron (Little Rock school
desegregation) Heart of Atlanta Motel v. United States (public
accommodations) Palmer v. Thompson (swimming pool integration)
Loving v. Virginia (interracial marriage) San Antonio v.
Rodriguez (equal funding for public schools) Bowers v.
Hardwick (homosexual rights) Baker v. Carr (“one
person, one vote”) United States v. Nixon (Watergate tapes)
DeShaney v. Winnebago County (child abuse)
Dec 29, 2016This is a great reference work, compiling into one place some of the most landmark cases the US Supreme Court has ever faced.
Dec 08, 2013Reading transcriptions of oral arguments is dry, but the editing and narration make this as interesting as it can be. I think I'd prefer to listen to the documentary series that this was based on, but it was still a good read.
Mar 30, 2010Great for what it is. Best when used in conjunction with a better summary of the Majority and Dissenting opinions.
