In the Balance: Law and Politics on the Roberts Court Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When John Roberts was appointed chief justice of the Supreme Court, he said he would act as an umpire. Instead, his Court is reshaping legal precedent through decisions unmistakably—though not always predictably— determined by politics as much as by law, on a Court almost perfectly politically divided.

Harvard University law professor Mark Tushnet provides deep background, explaining how Federalist Society and “Supreme Court Bar” networks provide a politicized structure for Court appointments. He guides us through the Roberts Court’s decisions on major issues including the hotly debated Affordable Care Act, gun rights, and business-related law. With special attention to recent Obama appointees Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan (already the leader of the more “liberal” justices), In the Balance is a must-read for anyone looking for fresh insight into the judicial philosophies and complex interactions of those at the helm of America’s legal system and the implications for America’s future.

Synopsis:

An examination of the initial years of the Roberts Court and the intellectual battle between Roberts and Kagan for leadership.
