Editorial Reviews

Review

"This first-rate collection provides additional and more comprehensive support for a sophisticated, interactive political model of separated powers.... Anyone with an interest in American political institutions ought to read this volume. It is chock full of thoughtful and insightful scholarship on a central aspect of American governance."―Law & Politics Book Review

Review

"The book delivers 'big-time,' providing a perspective that should change how we conceptualize the lawmaking process, altering our perceptions of the role of different levels and branches of government in the process, and providing a provocative argument about why the American lawmaking process differs so greatly from that of other established democracies. It thus will become a 'must read' volume for all who are seriously interested in understanding American lawmaking and the role of our governing institutions in it."―Lawrence C. Dodd, Manning J. Dauer Eminent Scholar in Political Science, University of Florida

"Anchored in the 'new institutionalism,' this volume makes a stunning contribution to both political science and legal scholarship. It replaces a tired (and incorrect) civics book notion of separation-of-powers with a more realistic (and accurate) view of policymaking that depends upon dialogue and shared powers among all the branches of government. The wonderfully written essays prepared by an all-star cast of scholars should make this an attractive book for use in any number of different political science, public policy, and law school courses. Indeed, entire courses can be constructed around it."―Malcolm M. Feeley, Claire Sanders Clements Professor of Law, Boalt Hall School of Law, University of California, Berkeley

"A major contribution. In this volume a wonderful collection of first-rate scholars treat legislators, executive officials, and judges as part of an integrated and ongoing process of democractic decision making. Miller and Barnes provide a thoughtful and persuasive rationale for their interbranch perspective, and the methodologically diverse essays provide conclusive evidence for the virtues of their approach. Making Policy, Making Law should usher in a new 'governance as dialogue' movement within institutional studies."―Howard Gillman, professor of political science and law, University of Southern California

"If the past decade of political science scholarship teaches us anything about courts and judges it is that they cannot be understood in isolation of other institutions. This very valuable volume expands our understanding of how courts and law influence, and are deeply influenced by, policy-making in the other branches. I cannot imagine a reader who would not be stimulated by thinking about the implications of this collection."―Cornell Clayton, Department of Political Science, Washington State University
