Product Description


'… the strength of [this] book lies in its recognition that judicial independence is ultimately as much about politicians as judges. Real world politics are at the heart of Clark's book, together with his recognition that many congressional practices, even those that lack any formal legal effect, hold profound significance for lawyers and judges. By drawing attention to what we might term 'the politics of judicial independence', this book is an important contribution to the regrettably still too thin literature on judicial independence.' Graham Gee, Public Law

Book Description

This book examines the relationship among the U.S. Supreme Court, Congress, and the public. Contrasting most studies of Court-Congress relations in the United States, the book argues that the Court's primary concern is protecting its institutional legitimacy and securing compliance with its decisions.
