David William Neubauer has taught at the University of Florida, at Washington University in St. Louis, and most recently at the University of New Orleans. In addition to this best-selling text, he is the author of DEBATING CRIME: RHETORIC AND REALITY, and BATTLE SUPREME: THE CONFIRMATION OF CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS AND THE FUTURE OF THE SUPREME COURT, both from Wadsworth. His articles have appeared in a wide array of scholarly journals, including Law and Society Review, Judicature, Policy Studies Journal, and Law and Policy Quarterly. Dr. Neubauer's current research interests include nominations to the Supreme Court and religion in public life.Review:
"The text and its flexibility allows many different approaches to teach Judicial Policymaking or related courses. The informational base of the text allows students to draw connections across ideas... The greatest strength of this book is analysis of interactions between politics, law, and social problems. There is broad coverage of issues with careful use of devices that encourage students to engage the subject matter and key issues. Students find the book informative and interesting, and substantive arguments are well developed."
"The greatest strengths are the "readability" of the chapters - the level of language, the manner in which the material is presented, the logical manner in which subject headings within chapters are organized. The students will read this text and will retain the information they read - this is what every instructor prays for when choosing a class text... In my opinion, it is the best book on this topic on the market right now."
"This book strikes a nice balance between formal structures and practical circumstances; I especially like the integration of stories and studies set in concrete places and times with descriptions of the way trial courts or judicial selection (to name two examples) "work" in general."
