MEN IN BLACK How the Supreme Court Is Destroying America By Mark Levin Regnery Press/$27.95 Mark Levin, a conservative talk radio host and the president of the Landmark Legal Foundation, has no trouble laying into the nation’s high court, writing, “More than any other branch or entity of government, the Supreme Court is the most radical and aggressive practitioner of unrestrained power.” Among his gripes with the court: conferring rights on detainees with links to al-Qaida and the Taliban, promoting racism in college admissions, expelling God and religion from the public square, restraining public speech and upholding partial-birth abortion. CREATING WINNING TRIAL STRATEGIES AND GRAPHICS By G. Christopher Ritter American Bar Association/$199 This book was written for the litigator preparing for trial, but would be beneficial for any lawyer who wants to give better presentations. Anecdotes, examples and full-color illustrations are abundant, and there’s a CD-ROM included with interactive graphics. One of the tips: “Whatever you do, never lose sight of your goal, which is to find ways to help jurors understand your case. � If simplicity comes from cutting back, do it. If you determine it is easier for the jurors to understand your case by adding material, do not be afraid to do so.” The conversational tone and superb index serve to counteract the book’s hefty price tag. THE PASSION OF MY TIMES An Advocate’s Fifty-Year Journey in the Civil Rights Movement By William Taylor Carroll & Graf/$26 After graduating from Yale University Law School in 1954, William Taylor went from being an attorney for the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund to being general counsel of the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights and later founding the Citizens’ Commission on Civil Rights. Not only was Taylor an eye witness to the civil rights struggles, he was also an advocate. His book, rich with stories and personalities, is part-memoir, part history of the times. CATASTROPHE: RISK AND RESPONSE By Richard Posner Oxford University Press/$28 Seventh Circuit Judge Richard Posner wants to avert a global catastrophe, whether in the form of an asteroid, bioterrorism or “a particle accelerator that might reduce the earth to a hyperdense sphere 100 meters across.” And he thinks he has a solution: gathering together lawyers, economists, psychologists and other social scientists with researchers in the physical sciences. Readers not prone to anxiety attacks will likely find this book worth reading. — Candice McFarland
