Publisher Description

In this remarkable book, a national bestseller in hardcover, Sandra Day O’Connor explores the law, her life as a Supreme Court Justice, and how the Court has evolved and continues to function, grow, and change as an American institution. Tracing some of the origins of American law through history, people, ideas, and landmark cases, O’Connor sheds new light on the basics, exploring through personal observation the evolution of the Court and American democratic traditions. Straight-talking, clear-eyed, inspiring, The Majesty of the Law is more than a reflection on O’Connor’s own experiences as the first female Justice of the Supreme Court; it also reveals some of the things she has learned and believes about American law and life—reflections gleaned over her years as one of the most powerful and inspiring women in American history.

Required reading for all Americans

This book provides a unique perspective on the American legal system and the critical role of the Judicial in shaping American society. Combining personal reflections with well researched historical facts, Justice O'Connor exposes the inner workings of the Supreme court and enlightens us about the intense struggles that have taken place in women's rights, racial equality, and our political system. She also offers up a vision of the future in the global economy as emerging democracies take hold and try to establish Judicial systems of their own. In a word...Fascinating!!!
