About this title


For nearly a decade, a team of researchers was busily at work preparing a data base on the decisions of the United States Supreme Court. This book documents those efforts. Specifically, this book is a codebook and a user's guide to the data. In addition to documenting each of the codes in the data set, this book also provides specific details on how the variables were coded, as well as information about the reliability of the results. Three major aspects of these decisions are addressed: the values expressed in the opinions of the Court (including concurrences, dissents, etc.), the attributes of the litigants in each case, and the nature and extent of participation in the litigation by amicus curiae.

About the Author:

He has published extensively in many areas of political science, from papers on the sentencing behavior of American judges to political tolerance in Russia and South Africa. He is the co-author of Civil Liberties and Nazis: The Skokie Free-Speech Controversy and Party Organizations and American Politics, and dozens of papers in major political science journals.

Store Description

We had an open shop in the Northwest section of Philadelphia in the Chestnut Hill, Mt Airy neighborhood for 18 1/2 years. It was in a beautiful 1882 train station designed by the noted architect, Frank Furness. In August of 2014, we closed that shop but continue to sell on-line out of our home in Williamsburg, PA. We'd love to have you visit our 8,000 plus books, by appointment.
