Summary
When Lewis Powell, Jr., was appointed to the Supreme Court, he appeared to be a true southern conservative. But once on the court, Powell proved to be his own man-hard to predict, bringing a complex mind to bear on complex issues-from affirmative action to the death penalty. In this program, Powell discusses a variety of issues including Watergate, the Constitution of the former Soviet Union, the death penalty, reverse discrimination, the working of the Court, and corporal punishment.
