Baum (political science, Ohio State U.) introduces the process and politics of the US Supreme Court, addressing such questions as who serves on the Court; how they got there; what determines which cases and issues the Court will decide; how the justices make decisions; what factors influence them; the extent of the Court's activism in policymaking; and the impact their rulings have.

About the Author:

Lawrence Baum is professor of political science at the Ohio State University and holds a doctorate from the University of Wisconsin. A widely recognized authority on the court system, Baum is the author of Judges and Their Audiences: A Perspective on Judicial Behavior (2006), American Courts: Process and Policy, 5th Edition (2001) and The Puzzle of Judicial Behavior (1997), as well as numerous articles on topics such as the implementation of court decisions, change in Supreme Court policies, and interaction between the Supreme Court and Congress.

From School Library Journal:

YA-- Baum has capsulated the course of the United States Supreme Court in a manner that is easy and enjoyable to read. He reviews several facets of the Court--the practical, the personal, the politics, the patterns, the policies, the process, the participants, and the power--and how they have changed over time. While writing in a simple style, he explodes several highly held myths. Those interested in government politics should find that the book will extend their knowledge and reaffirm what they already may know. Aspiring attorneys would profit by reading it, and students who follow the Court through newspapers will delight to find analysis of very recent events. Through this book, readers will gain a better understanding of our political system.
- Judge R. P. Walker, Port Arthur, TX
