This paper provides a critique of 'The Brethren', a work by Bob Woodward and Scott Armstrong that provides insight into the behind-the-scenes workings of the U.S. Supreme Court and its Justices. The critique argues the authors' are biased against public officials due to the era during which they wrote the work.

From the Paper:

"The era during which Bob Woodward and Scott Armstrong wrote 'The Brethren' has much to do with shaping the tone and tenor of the work. As the authors admit in their opening, Vietnam and Watergate demonstrated that the detailed steps of decision making, the often hidden motives of the decision makers can be as important as the eventual decisions themselves. (Woodward and Armstrong) Because of the lack of trust in government created by Vietnam and Watergate, 'The Brethren' provides an unflattering one-sided account.
