Scholarship on judicial politics is rich, varied, and constantly improving. New research on organized interests, increasing attention to courts at the state level, evaluation of new appointment processes for judges, and a close look at the civil liberties and rights challenges in the wake of 9/11 all find their way onto the pages of this new edition. The authors attempt to present not only a comprehensive survey of the American judicial system, but an assessment of the interrelation between the courts and public policy. The sixth edition also features the authors' analysis of the ideological direction of judicial opinions during the current Bush administration.
