Hanging chads. Butterfly ballots. Unruly demonstrations across the country. A state capital occupied by the national press corps. For thirty-six excruciating days in late 2000, a nation held its breath while seven men held in their hands the fate of the presidential election in Florida. The events that transpired within the justices' chambers?their arguments, exhortations, and appeals to one another?have remained a mystery . . . until now. Inside Bush v. Gore presents the unique, candid, and compelling perspective of the Florida Supreme Court Chief Justice who stood at the center of the storm.
