9781576072004: The Rehnquist Court: Justices, Rulings, and Legacy (1986-2001)

Did the Rehnquist Court, which followed the liberal Warren Court and the moderate Burger Court, achieve a conservative counterrevolution? Using quantitative data to supplement detailed opinion analysis, political scientist Thomas R. Hensley argues that continuity not change characterized the Rehnquist Court era. But without a doubt, the Rehnquist Court was frequently a war zone.

Fourteen justices served during the Rehnquist era, which began in 1986 during the Reagan administration and ended with Rehnquist's death in September 2005. Presidents Reagan and Bush appointed conservative justices and set in motion an assault on the "ultra-liberal" decisions made by the two previous courts. But President Clinton appointed two moderate Democrats, slowing the conservative juggernaut. The result? One of the most fascinating, contentious, and crucial periods in the history of the U.S. Supreme Court.

Book Description ABC-CLIO Ltd. Hardback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, The Rehnquist Court: Justices, Rulings, and Legacy, Thomas R. Hensley, Who can forget the dramatic Justice Thomas hearings and the Florida election fiasco of 2000? But the Rehnquist Court is even better known for its intense partisanship, as Presidents Reagan and Bush packed the Court with conservative justices to counter the perceived ultra-liberal decisions of the two previous courts, although President Clinton restored some balance by appointing two moderates. This volume offers: systematic analysis of major conservative changes in US constitutional law by the Court; discusses the voting record of the Court and its lasting impact; and describes events and key players of the era. The primary categories of constitutional law covered include freedom of expression, the religion clauses, the guarentees of the criminally accused, equal protection, privacy, economic rights and issues of government powers.
