New Book: Supreme Conflict

ABC News reporter Jan Crawford Greenburg has written what sounds like a fascinating new book: SUPREME CONFLICT: THE INSIDE STORY OF THE STRUGGLE FOR CONTROL OF THE UNITED STATES SUPREME COURT.

Among other things, apparently the book ends the myth of Justice Clarence Thomas as a passive member of the court. According to the L.A. Times, "Greenburg traces how Thomas, from his first case, 'acted as a catalyst, spurring the other justices...to rethink their positions and realign themselves.'"

The book also details the behind-the-scenes drama surrounding Justice O'Connor's resignation.

More from The New York Times and ABC.
