SCOTUS-Books-in-Brief

BY  · FEBRUARY 10, 2014

 

Top Five Books has just announced a forthcoming series of e-books on Supreme Court cases. The series is titled “SCOTUS: Books-in-Brief.”  It is designed to provide readers – lay and scholarly alike – with a reliable, informative, and engaging narrative account of a significant Supreme Court ruling shortly after it comes down. Provided in e-book format, each work will be economically priced and accessible on multiple e-platforms.

Each e-book will be available within a week of the decision and will consist of an historical account of the general subject, a full statement of its facts, profiles of the parties, analyses of the lower court judgments, examination of the briefs filed and the oral arguments in the Supreme Court, a discussion of the larger issues raised by the case, an analysis of the final judgment, and a comprehensive timeline – and all completed and ready for e-publication shortly after a Court ruling is rendered.

The first book in the series (now virtually complete at 75,000 words save for commentary on the forthcoming ruling) isWhen Money Speaks: The McCutcheon Decision, Campaign Finance Laws, and the First Amendment. (See excerpt here.)

Writers Wanted!

If you are a good writer, have expertise in a certain area pertaining to a case before the Supreme Court, and can complete a 30,000-75,000 word manuscript (depending on the complexity of the case and subject matter) in a relatively short period of time, then contact us – we’d love to hear from you.
