Earl Warren (1891 - 1974) was the 14th Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court and one of only two people to be elected Governor of California three times. He is best known for the sweeping decisions of the Warren Court, which ended school segregation and transformed many areas of American law, especially regarding the rights of the accused, ending school prayer, and requiring "one-man-one vote" rules of apportionment. As governor , he was a popular Republican and popular across party lines, so much so that in the 1946 gubernatorial election he won the nominations of the Democratic, Progressive, and Republican parties and was reelected virtually without opposition. His tenure as Chief Justice was as divisive as his governorship was unifying. Liberals generally hailed the landmark rulings issued by the Warren Court which affected, among other things, the legal status of racial segregation, civil rights, separation of church and state, and police arrest procedure in the United States. In addition to the constitutional offices , he chaired the Warren Commission, which was formed to investigate the 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy. His strength lay in his clear vision that the Constitution embodied natural rights that could not be denied to the citizenry and that the Supreme Court had a special role in protecting those rights. Political conservatives attacked his judicial activism as inappropriate and have called for courts to be deferential to the elected political branches. Political liberals sometimes admit that the Warren Court went too far in some areas, but insist that most of its controversial decisions struck a responsive chord in the nation and have become embedded in the law

Notice to all buyers. Since the beginning of the year some old stock that has been sold, is magically reappearing in our store. I am working to delete all of these, but occasionally they are popping up. I am doing my best to solve this mystery. Also, we ship overseas. I have added all books to be shipped overseas, and will be double checking to make sure any oversized books are not included in the overseas sales. Occasionally I will not catch one, and a book is too costly to ship without added postage. Our post office has raised overseas prices to ridiculous rates and I will make every effort to ship as inexpensive as possible, and reimburse any . overpayment on your part. Thanks so very much!
