About this title


"Kahn's provocative book boldly challenges students of the modern Court to take constitutional theory seriously. His objective is nothing less than a wholesale revision of our understanding of the Supreme Court's pattern of behavior from the Warren era to the present". -- American Political Science Review.

From the Back Cover:

"An impressive reinterpretation of the Warren, Burger, and Rehnquist courts."--Rogers M. Smith, author of Liberalism and American Constitutional Law

"Kahn boldly challenges not only many of the prevailing interpretations of the Supreme Court's jurisprudence, but also the way that many scholars look at the Court."--Walter F. Murphy, McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence, Princeton University

"At last a constitutional law scholar with the courage to respect constitutional and institutional forms as real political forces not reducible to political power, political processes, or economic and group forces operating through politics. This book is revisionism the other way-back toward a simple, unadorned reading of decisions and rationales."--Theodore Lowi, John L. Senior Professor of American Institutions, Cornell University

"A provocative 'revisionist' analysis of the Court and constitutional politics. Students and scholars alike will find this book useful and interesting."--David M. O'Brien, author of Storm Center: The Supreme Court in American Politics

"A provocative and challenging reinterpretation."--Joel B. Grossman, author of Constitutional Law
