Nixon's Court (His Challenge to Judicial Liberalism and Its Political Consequences) (Book)
Title: Nixon's Court (His Challenge to Judicial Liberalism and Its Political Consequences)
Author: Kevin J. McMahon
Abstract: In seeking to appeal to voters he would later call the "great silent majority'" presidential candidate Richard Nixon laid down a challenge to the Warren Supreme Court in 1968, blaming it for the nation's recent crime wave and the unrest plaguing American's urban core. Inspired by his success in the election, Nixon maneuvered during the course of his presidency to alter the Court in hopes of making it work for him. Most analysts, however, have deemed Nixon's challenge to the judicial liberalism of the Warren Supreme Court a failure--"a counterrevolution that wasn't." Nixon's Court offers an alternative assessment.
