While this recent decline in the Courts standing inspired numerous analyses, criticism of the Court is far from a new feature of American life. Since its creation in the 1780s, the U.S. Supreme Court has been dogged by questions of legitimacy, and it is frequently seen as a symbol of governmental tyranny and political corruption. This volume of Opinions Throughout History traces some of the most important eras in the history of the Court and examines the personalities of the justices who helped to define and redefine constitutional law throughout the eras. From defining the powers of Congress to public feuds between the Court and the presidency, the Supreme Court has played an essential role in delineating the powers and limitations of the American government. By seeing how ideology, political influence, and struggles for power have shaped the bench, this volume will attempt to create a better understanding of the Supreme Courts journey and its potential future path.
