The eighth edition of Judicial Process in America gives a thorough overview of the American judiciary, paying particular attention to the relationship between the courts and the political environment in which they operate. While analyzing the courts at every level, the authors comprehensively cover judges, lawyers, litigants, and the powerful variables that influence judicial decision making, effectively linking the courts to public policy. Inclusion of multiple new cases, as well as discussion of the Obama administrations latest judicial appointments, makes this book incredibly current. Adopters and students alike will also appreciate the unique annotated U.S. Constitution found in the appendix. This extensive revision of a classic text brings new life to a standard-bearer for judicial process classes.

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
