Book Discussion "Supreme Inequality" by Adam Cohen


Our book for May is the Supreme Inequality: The Supreme Court's Fifty-Year Battle for a More Unjust America by lawyer journalist Adam Cohen.

From Amazon:
In Supreme Inequality, bestselling author Adam Cohen surveys the most significant Supreme Court rulings since the Nixon era and exposes how, contrary to what Americans like to believe, the Supreme Court does little to protect the rights of the poor and disadvantaged; in fact, it has not been on their side for fifty years. Cohen proves beyond doubt that the modern Court has been one of the leading forces behind the nation’s soaring level of economic inequality, and that an institution revered as a source of fairness has been systematically making America less fair.

“[A] tour guide such as Mr. Cohen is invaluable. He understands both the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ of the court’s past 50 years. Whereas the average citizen might feel that the Supreme Court ‘ensures fairness for all,’ Mr. Cohen’s book demonstrates how it has become a ‘court of the 1 percent, not the 99 percent.’” – Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
