Jan Crawford Greenburg

Supreme conflict: the inside story of the struggle for control of the United States Supreme Court. Penguin Press, 2007

KF8742.G74 2007

 

Drawing on access to the Supreme Court justices and their inner circles, ABC News legal correspondent Jan Crawford Greenburg offers an account of one of the most momentous political watersheds in recent American history.

 

Over the past decade, the central front of America's bitter culture wars has been the titanic battle over the composition and direction of the United States Supreme Court. Now, in Supreme Conflict, Greenburg draws on all of her resources to give an account of the struggle for the soul of the highest court in the land.

 

Frank B. Cross

Decision making in the U.S. Courts of Appeals. Stanford University Press, 2007

KF8990.C76 2007

 

This book analyzes the decisions made by the United States circuit courts over the past half century. Cross demonstrates that while the courts' judges are influenced by ideology and by the appointing president, legal requirements exercise a much stronger influence on their decisions. He also shows that these courts are independent of the other branches of government and free from undue influence of various parties. The book further introduces new research on the precedent-setting power of decisions.
