Although Americans usually associate the significant events of their political history with the contemporaneous presidential administration, since the appointment of Earl Warren as Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court the judiciary has wrought more significant changes in our society than have the three administrations who have served during the same period. In the fifteen years since Justice Warren's appointment the Supreme Court has profoundly altered many constitutional doctrines, including those affecting race relations, criminal procedure, and election operations. The controversy surrounding the court's decisions has been sharp.
