The present volume, a selection of Felix Frankfurter’s extrajudicial nontechnical writings on the Supreme Court, its Justices, and its business, includes fifty-four pieces written between 1913 and 1956 and originally published in popular or scholarly journals. These essays serve to reinforce Frankfurter’s stature as a truly just and concerned individual; and their chronological arrangement reveals the consistency of his views on the proper role of the Court.
