Kaplan, the former legal affairs editor of Newsweek, shows how the justices subvert the role of the other branches of government鈥攁nd how we鈥檝e come to accept it at our peril.Never before has the Court been more central in American life. It is now the nine justices who too often decide the biggest issues of our time鈥攆rom abortion and same-sex marriage to gun control, campaign finance, and voting rights. The Court is so crucial that many voters in 2016 made their choice based on whom they thought their presidential candidate would name to the Court. Donald Trump picked Neil Gorsuch鈥攖he key decision of his new administration. The newest justice, Brett Kavanaugh鈥攔eplacing Anthony Kennedy鈥攊s even more important, holding the swing vote over so much social policy. With the 2020 campaign underway, and with two justices in their 鈥80s, the Court looms even larger. Is that really how democracy is supposed to work?Based on exclusive interviews with the justices, Kaplan provides fresh details about life behind the scenes at the Court: the reaction to Kavanaugh鈥檚 controversial arrival, the new role for Chief Justice John Roberts, Clarence Thomas's simmering rage, Antonin Scalia's death, Ruth Bader Ginsburg's celebrity, Breyer Bingo, and the petty feuding between Gorsuch and the chief justice.Kaplan offers a sweeping narrative of the justices鈥 aggrandizement of power over the decades鈥攆rom Roe v. Wade to Bush v. Gore to Citizens United. (He also faults the Court for not getting involved when it should鈥攆or example, to limit partisan gerrymandering.) But the arrogance of the Court isn't partisan: Conservative and liberal justices alike are guilty of overreach. Challenging conventional wisdom about the Court's transcendent power, as well as presenting an intimate inside look at the Court, The Most Dangerous Branch is sure to rile both sides of the political aisle.
