On Democracy's Doorstep

List price: $16.00

Available: 19

The inside story of the Supreme Court decisions that brought true democracy to the United States.

As chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, Earl Warren is most often remembered for landmark rulings in favor of desegregation and the rights of the accused. But Warren himself identified a lesser known group of cases - Baker v. Carr, Reynolds v. Sims, and their companions - as his most important work. J. Douglas Smith's On Democracy's Doorstep masterfully recounts the tumultuous and often overlooked events that established the principle of "one person, one vote" in the United States.
