Editorial Reviews

Review

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Robert W. Smith VINE VOICE on October 21, 2008
Format: Paperback
Carp et al's book, "Judicial Process in America" is an excellent undergraduate text that describes the state and federal courts, the players, processes, and history. It is very well written, concise, and clear. As the seventh edition, it is somewhat of a stalwart in helping individuals to better understand the judicial processes. i would have liked to see a chapter comparing american judicial processes to those of other nations. i also would have liked to see a chapter on strengths, weaknesses, and upcoming changes (e.g., specialization courts - drug and mental health) ... overall, this is an excellent read and is highly recommended for undergraduate students and perhaps as a reference for individuals who serve or wish to better understand the judicial system.

Very prompt delivery and new book arrived in excellent shape. Although this is primarily a textbook, it makes interesting reading in these times of changing perceptions of our judicial system and process.

It arrived on time, and condition is a bit worn out but good nonetheless. Very good price for what I purchased.
