The Warren Court, edited by Richard H. Sayler, Barry B. Boyer, and Robert E. Gooding Jr. New York: Chelsea House. $7.95.

This collection of 10 lucid essays by legal scholars examines the unprecedented social changes wrought by the US Supreme Court during the 15 years of Chief Justice Earl Warren's leadership. Included are discussions of the court's desegregation, reapportionment, and criminal procedure decisions, which Justice Warren deemed among its most significant. New York Times correspondent Anthony Lewis's brief biography of Warren and a chapter on "The Warren Myths" provide a clear assessment of the man, his philosophy, and his place within the court.
