Description


Whether you're a student trying to fake your way through an American History or Government class, a loyal American citizen seeking constitutional context for current events, or just trying to look smart on a budget, "Have To" History: Landmark Supreme Court Cases is all the stuff you don't really want to know (but for some reason have to) about 44 of the most important cases in our collective history. From midnight judges to gay marriage, internment camps to presidential shenanigans, you'll find yourself looking more thoughtful and insightful just by leaving a few copies lying around. And if you actually read it, well... your credibility and self-confidence will soar, and you'll start decisively winning all of those arguments on social media. (Just tell them you have the book ) Each featured case comes with historical context, the "three big things" you should remember, and an explanation of the decision and why we're still talking about it today. Excerpts from the Court's majority opinions are included, along with interesting bits from important concurring or dissenting opinions (so you can take in the Court's reasoning in its own words). Additional "worth-a-look" cases are presented in compact form with brief highlights from the Court's decision and a quick summary of the case and why it mattered. "Have To" History: Landmark Supreme Court Cases is readable and fresh and covers everything likely to be on the test. Take that last bit as literally or metaphorically as you wish.
