No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, you can likely agree that the Supreme Court has rarely seemed as powerful — and polarized — as it does today.

Author David A. Kaplan, a former legal affairs editor at Newsweek, where he covered the Supreme Court for a decade, couldn’t agree more with that assessment.

So he wrote a book on it, titled The Most Dangerous Branch: Inside The Supreme Court's Assault On The Constitution, based on a number of interviews he did with past and present justices, law clerks, and congressional and White House officials.

He gives NPR’s Terry Gross a glimpse into his finding and his predictions in a long interview on Fresh Air.
