When Closed Chambers was first published, it was met with a firestorm of controversyas well as a shower of praisefor being the first book to break the code of silence about the inner workings of this countrys most powerful court. In this eloquent, trailblazing account, with a new chapter covering Bush v. Gore, Guantanamo, and other recent controversial court decisions, Edward Lazarus, who served as a clerk to Justice Harry Blackmun, presents a searing indictment of a court at war with itself and often in neglect of its constitutional duties. Combining memoir, history, and legal analysis, Lazarus reveals in astonishing detail the realities of what takes place behind the closed doors of the U.S. Supreme Courtan institution that through its rulings holds the power to affect the life of every American.
