Quote: “To my beautiful wife, Maryan, with thanks for keeping me healthy and happy.”

Five Chiefs is an extraordinary and historically significant look at the highest court in the United States.

Description: When Justice John Paul Stevens  resigned in June of 2010, Justice Stevens was the third longest serving Justice in American history (1975-2010).

In Five Chiefs, Justice Stevens captures the inner workings of the Supreme Court through his personal experiences with the five Chief Justices which include:


He reminisces of being a law clerk during Fred Vinson’s tenure; a practicing lawyer for Earl Warren; a circuit judge and junior justice for Warren Burger; a contemporary colleague of William 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 Fred Vinson, who became Chief Justice in 1946 when Truman was President, to Roberts, who became Chief Justice in 2005.

If you love history and law this is a wonderful reading of facts according to Justice John Paul Stevens.
