‘The Nine: Inside the secret world of the Supreme Court’ by Jeffrey Toobin will be the topic of the Contemporary Issues political book discussion on Wednesday, November 28, at 3:00 P.M. in the Rockport Public Library. The book takes readers into the chambers of the most important’and secret’legal body in our country and reveals the complex dynamic among the nine people who decide the law of the land. Toobin reveals an institution at a moment of transition, when decades of conservative disgust with the Court have produced a conservative majority, with major changes in store on such issues as abortion, civil rights, presidential power, and church-state relations.
