This study examines the judicial philosophy of original intent and how the 1987 Robert Bork hearings impacted the judicial nomination and confirmation process. The Bork nomination was a merging of jurisprudence and politics. Following Bork’s rejection, many opponents of original intent argued that originalism was dead. The purpose of this research was to determine if the original intent debate still exists and how the Bork episode affected the nomination and confirmation process.

Review:

"This book will be appreciated by library audiences that want a recounting of the events and circumstances underlying today's partisan polarization of the federal judicial nomination process, especially in the higher courts." - Professor Timothy J. Barnett, Jacksonville State University "If I could only recommend one book to graduate students and non-judicial specialists wanting to understand the background and context of the current battle over the Federal judiciary, I would recommend this book." - Professor Stephen Borrelli, University of Alabama"
