Chief Justice John Roberts has always played his cards close to his chest. Though he may seem like a loyal Republican, he has deviated sharply from orthodox conservative thinking at times, and he insists upon the neutrality of the Supreme Court. In this book, longtime Supreme Court legal analyst and reporter Joan Biskupic attempts to answer the question: Who is John Roberts, and what makes him tick? This insightful book provides an approachable overview not only of Roberts’s biography, but also of the historical circumstances that shaped the man – and the powerful office which he holds.
