Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the book represents the culmination of an academic conversation dating back to the 1940s and sets the stage for the next phase." Perspectives on Political Science

"...a worthy successor to The Supreme Court and the Attitudinal Model (1993). In sum [this] is an excellent book. Almost anyone with an interest in Supreme Court decision making will find a lot to like within its pages. Serious scholars of judicial behavior should definitely find a place for this book on their personal library shelves." The Law and Politics Book Review

"A first-rate book and a perfect companion reader for courses in constitutional law and judicial policy." Choice

Book Description

This book, authored by two leading scholars of the Supreme Court and its policy making, systematically presents and validates the use of the attitudinal model to explain and predict Supreme Court decision making. In the process, it critiques the two major alternative models of Supreme Court decision making and their major variants: the legal and rational choice.Using the U.S. Supreme Court Data Base, the justices' private papers, and other sources of information, the book analyzes the appointment process, certiorari, the decision on the merits, opinion assignments, and the formation of opinion coalitions.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In terms of discussions of the Supreme Court, this book is something of a staple. The authors tend to allow a bit much of their own opinions into the stories they tell, but the analysis of the manner in which the Justices decide cases is provocative. Reading and understanding the arguments contained in the Attitudinal Model is core curriculum in academic conversations on the nature of the Court.
