Nixon's Court: His Challenge to Judicial Liberalism and Its Political
Consequences. Chicago: University of Chicago Press, 2011.343 pp. (S29.00,
cloth). Since Bob Woodward and Scott Armstrong's The Brethren (1979) gave us
a glimpse behind the veil cloaking the Supreme Court's inner workings, we've

creating it. Their insightful journalistic account was followed by more scholarly
work, usually situated in a ...

To replace retiring Chief Justice Warren, Nixon named Warren E. Burger, who
had sat for more than ten years as a judge on the important United States Court
of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit. ... Burger's appointment as Chief
Justice was therefore interpreted as a partial fulfillment of one of Nixon's
campaign themes of at least stemming the tide against overly liberal decisions in
this area. ... As a consequence, civil rights groups and the AFL-CIO opposed his

cares enough to be accurate about the matter, it is true that the California court
under Chief Justice Bird has continued to read provisions in the California
constitution as restricting law enforcement in ways consistent with decisions of
the Warren court but contrary to recent "retreats" of the Burger court. • Political
labels — The media reinforce the public image of judges as politicians. There is
constant talk of the "Nixon" court, of Brown appointees, of liberal versus

The Court's retreat from reason and justice, truly defined, will afflict hundreds of
thousands of young women and their unwanted children, all of them at the least
advantaged levels of this society. ... the title “Carter's Global Gospel,” and it is

Nixon and Ford.

In substance, they deal with the very framework of American society. With the
system of unashamed political appointment it is possible to trace the movement
from a liberal Supreme Court to one which by the end of this book is described by
the authors as being in control of the centre. A few more years of Nixon type
appointments and the right would have taken over completely. In this country
there is a strong and healthy tradition of Judges looking to the social
consequences of their ...

Burger's opinion had the ring of a heavily “negotiated” settlement. Admirers of the
Supreme Court frequently suggest that its decisions are reached through some
