Books to be Published
No one, not even the ACLU, has this exhaustive compendium of more than 1,100 ACLU cases at the Supreme Court. In addition to the approximate 2 ½-page layman summary of each case, the work includes a Foreword by Erwin Chemerinsky, Ira Glasser’s explicit draft one-pager on what the ACLU does and how it does what it does, data on how each Supreme Court Justice voted on each case, and the Win / Loss record (the batting average) at the Supreme Court for all those years.
The work is 99% complete and will be available in two different stand-alone formats.
- A Four-volume (or perhaps three-volume set based on typesetting), 8 1/2 X 11″ hardcover set (after typesetting around 2,400 pages) of over 1,100 cases and related facts and information
- 250 page, 6 X 9″ Handbook, with all the facts and data of the four-volume set, but with only 3 of the 1,100 plus cases.
