About this Item

204 pages. Dimensions: 8.6in. x 5.6in. x 0.8in.The choices the Supreme Court makes in taking their cases casts an important part of each individual justices jurisprudence. This book attaches case selection on the high court to a broader institutional context that incorporates the goals of individual justices, other branches of government, and the evolution of the courts power over time. Udi Sommer provides compelling evidence (such as the correspondence between justices and their clerks) which indicates that on a range of issues - from abortion and federalism to gun rights and campaign finance - justices strategically choose to review certain cases and not others. Furthermore, cutting-edge quantitative methodologies show that such strategic behavior is systematic. Supreme Court Agenda Setting relates the question of agenda setting to the broader issue of the role of the Supreme Court within American politics and society at large, providing a vital analysis of modern Court behavior. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137399915

About this title


Much research is devoted to the decision-making power and precedent set by the Supreme Court. Less attention, however, is given to the strategic behavior during case selection. This book argues that case selection is done strategically, and by means of various criteria - influencing its constitutional position and importance.
