Abstract:

From the moment John Roberts, the Chief Justice of the United States, fumbled the oath of office at Barack Obama's inauguration, the relationship between the Court and the White House has been tense and confrontational. The president and the chief justice are both young, brilliant, charismatic, determined to change the course of the nation -- and completely at odds on almost every major constitutional issue. And now they are also linked in history because of Roberts's stunning vote to uphold Obama's health care plan. With his signature blend of insider reporting and lucid, entertaining analyses of the legal issues at stake, Jeffrey Toobin brings this relationship to urgent, vivid life.
