    Based on exclusive interviews with justices themselves, The Nine tells the story of the Court through personalities, from Anthony Kennedy's overwhelming sense of self-importance to Clarence Thomas' well-tended grievances against his critics to David Souter's odd 19th-century lifestyle. There is also, for the first time, the full behind-the-scenes story of Bush v. Gore: and Sandra Day O'Connor's fateful breach with George W. Bush, the president she helped place in office.

    Where do "rights" come from? Professor Alan Dershowitz provides an entirely new resolution to this age-old dilemma: rights, he argues, do not come from God, nature, logic, or law alone, but from particular experiences with injustice, and from trial and error. He also touches on the rights of prisoners and the situation in the Middle East. His new book is Rights from Wrongs. Professor Dershowitz speaks with Jeffrey Toobin, CNN legal analyst and New Yorker staff writer.
