Summary
"Can the Supreme Court be free of politics? Do we want it to be? Normative constitutional theory has long concerned itself with the legitimate scope and limits of judicial review. Too often, theorists seek to resolve that issue by eliminating politics from constitutional decisionmaking. In contrast, Terri Peretti argues for an openly political role for the Supreme Court." "In Defense of a Political Court marshals considerable empirical evidence regarding the courts and American democracy to support its provocative normative argument. In so doing, it bridges the gap between normative constitutional theorists and political scientists who study the courts."--Jacket
