Book Description Praeger. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 219 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 6.2in. x 1.1in.Supreme Myths: Why the Supreme Court is Not a Court and its Justices are Not JudgeS and Lt;i presents a detailed discussion of the Courts most important and controversial constitutional cases that demonstrates why it doesnt justify being labeled a court of law. Eric Segall, professor of law at Georgia State University College of Law for two decades, explains why this third branch of the national government is an institution that makes important judgments about fundamental questions based on the Justices ideological preferences, not the law. A complete understanding of the true nature of the Courts decision-making process is necessary, he argues, before an intelligent debate over who should serve on the Courtand how they should resolve casescan be held. Addressing front-page areas of constitutional law such as health care, abortion, affirmative action, gun control, and freedom of religion, this book offers a frank description of how the Supreme Court truly operates, a critique of life tenure of its Justices, and a set of proposals aimed at making the Court function more transparently to further the goals of our representative democracy. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780313396878
