The U.S. Supreme Court with Linda Greenhouse and David Cole

Linda Greenhouse’s 30-year tenure covering the U.S Supreme Court for The New York Times was longer than any sitting justice except for John Paul Stevens. She wrote more than 3,000 articles, won a Pulitzer Prize, and drew on her deep knowledge of how the court works to write The U.S. Supreme Court: A Very Short Introduction. Now, as justices prepare for the 2018-19 term and a pivotal seat remains to be filled, Linda is joined by ACLU National Legal Director David Cole to discuss recent and historical decisions, how cases are chosen, the relationship between the court and the public, the controversy over term limits, and this critical moment in the court and the country’s history. Book included with admission and a book signing to follow.

The series, Short Talks on Big Subjects features writers from the Oxford University Press Very Short Introductions books.

Presented by: the Center for Jewish History, Oxford University Press, and the American Jewish Historical Society
