"A stunning work of history."—Doris Kearns Goodwin, author of No Ordinary Time and Team of RivalsBeginning in 1935, the Supreme Court's conservative majority left much of FDR's agenda in ruins. The pillars of the New Deal fell in short succession. It was not just the New Deal but democracy itself that stood on trial.
