Brian McGinty

Lincoln and the Court

Harvard University Press, 2008

KF8742.M32 2008

 

The Civil War, as McGinty explains, was a struggle over constitutional interpretation: did Lincoln have the constitutional authority to do whatever he thought necessary to compel seceding states back to the Union? He thought so, but Chief Justice Roger Brooke Taney sometimes disagreed. This book describes several Supreme Court cases that centered on important legal issues such as habeas corpus, blockading ports, and whether or not a citizen could criticize the president during wartime.

 

Michael J. Gerhardt

The Power of Precedent

University Press, 2008

KF429.G47 2008

 

The role that precedent plays in constitutional decision-making can be a divisive subject. The debate rages over several aspects of the issue: to what extent are the Supreme Court and other constitutional actors constrained by precedent? To what extent should they be? The disagreements extend to the meaning of precedent itself: does precedent consist of just a prior holding or ruling? Or does it include the underlying reasoning? The author outlines the major issues in the debates about the significance of precedence, and offers his own theory for understanding the institutional power of precedence as a source of constraint on the constitutional decision-making of the Court, the presidency, and the Congress.
