Landmark U.S. Supreme Court Cases

The American public service television channel, C-Span, has just completed a series entitled Landmark Cases in which 12 of the most important cases decided by the U.S. Supreme Court are presented - starting with Marbury v. Madison (1803) and ending with Roe v. Wade (1973). The each case is presented through a video (1h 30 min), and each web page has links to the decisions themselves, plus the recordings of oral arguments when available. No transcript but C-Span has produced a 120 page book to accompany the series.
