Product description

From the Inside Flap

"[A] balanced and thoughtful collection"-Ethan Bronner, New York Times Book Review

Even before George W. Bush took office, the prolonged and complex process by which he was elected came under scrutiny. The Florida electoral controversy and the subsequent decisions by both the Florida courts and the U.S. Supreme Court left citizens and scholars alike divided over the role of the judiciary in the electoral arena. In The Vote, leading constitutional scholars weigh in on the Supreme Court's actions, which seem sensible, legally legitimate, and pragmatically defensible to some and an egregious abuse of power to others. Representing the full spectrum of views and arguments, The Vote offers the most timely and considered guide to the ultimate consequences and significance of the Supreme Court's decision. Chapters include:

o Richard A. Epstein on the respective strengths and weaknesses of the two rationales used by
the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn the Florida court's decision

o Pamela S. Karlan on how the Court's decision represents an emerging and dangerous
redefinition of equal protection law

o Richard H. Pildes on how the Supreme Court's split decision represents a greater division
among the Court on "cultural" attitudes toward democracy

o Judge Richard A. Posner on why, even if the hand recounts had been completed, Gore would
have lost the presidential election

o Cass R. Sunstein on how the Court's decision just might have created the largest new voting
right since one person-one vote


The 2000 presidential election will no doubt be the subject of analysis for decades to come, but few books can claim as distinguished a roster of contributors better qualified to place the judicial decisions in their appropriate historical, legal, and political contexts.
