Book #Giveaway: Five Chiefs by John Paul Stevens {3 Winners}

Wednesday, October 12, 2011 Posted by Dina N

Today, I have a fascinating memoir for you - Five Chiefs: A Supreme Court Memoir by John Paul Stevens. It's new this month from Little, Brown and Company, a division of Hachette Book Group.

Book Description
When he resigned last June, Justice Stevens was the third longest serving Justice in American history (1975-2010) - only Justice William O. Douglas, whom Stevens succeeded, and Stephen Field have served on the Court for a longer time.

In Five Chiefs, Justice Stevens captures the inner workings of the Supreme Court via his personal experiences with the five Chief Justices - Fred Vinson, Earl Warren, Warren Burger, William Rehnquist, and John Roberts - that he interacted with. He reminisces of being a law clerk during Vinson's tenure; a practicing lawyer for Warren; a circuit judge and junior justice for Burger; a contemporary colleague of Rehnquist; and a colleague of current Chief Justice John Roberts. Along the way, he will discuss his views of some the most significant cases that have been decided by the Court from Vinson, who became Chief Justice in 1946 when Truman was President, to Roberts, who became Chief Justice in 2005.

Packed with interesting anecdotes and stories about the Court, Five Chiefs is an unprecedented and historically significant look at the highest court in the United States.

    George RR Marten's Dance with Dragons - his latest in the Fire and Ice series. Waited 5 years for this book to finally be released and it was fantastic.
    Currently now waiting for the next ... and I'd love to read Five Chiefs

    The last book I read was Snowmen at Night. It's a simple children's book, but it was really cute and the pictures are excellent. My 3 year old liked it too.
