A thorough revision of a tried and true classic, the seventh edition of Judicial Process in America offers a comprehensive study of the American judicial system that integrates new scholarship and original research. Including analysis of the courts at all levels, the authors cover judges, lawyers, and litigants, as well as the powerful variables that influence judicial decision making, effectively linking the courts to public policy. In response to feedback from adopters, the authors have increased their coverage of state courts and further explore the impact of race, gender, and socio-economic factors on the judiciary. Discussion of the ideological impact of George W. Bush's judicial appointments, including two new Supreme Court justices, and inclusion of recent cases on end-of-life issues, property rights, and gay and lesbian rights bring the book fully up to date.

Review:
I have used Judicial Process in America for many years, through several editions, as the lead text in my undergraduate, upper-division Judiciary course. It is comprehensive, analytical, straightforward, and up-to-date, and it includes reference to important research about the judiciary. The book presents not just the structure, process, and participants within the Federal and state judicial systems, but also the political and sociological forces that affect how the judicial system operates. It is carefully written, at a level suitable to upper-division undergraduates. --- Ira Bloom, Lehman College of The City, University of New York

There is no better judicial politics text than Judicial Process in America. I have used this text in my judicial politics course and my students have found it informative, well-written and timely. --- Sheldon Goldman, University of Massachusetts at Amherst

I am just finishing my course that uses Judicial Process, and it has been wonderful. The book is very well organized, clearly written without too much jargon, and it has excellent current examples. Of the four texts I use in the American courts class, the students prefer this over all the others. It is concise and doesn't waste all kinds of space on pictures and inserts that merely drive up the costs of texts. Carp's book is great because it does the job without worthless frills, and everyone appreciates that! --- Br. Donald Stabrowski, University of Portland
