Publisher Comments:

The struggle over the outcome of the 2000 presidential election inspired countless books, most of them hasty political critiques. However, with this book, Howard Gillman had different aims from the beginning: to create a lasting, authoritative document of the 36 days between the election and its legal resolution, to offer an accessible overview of the legal strategies and debates, and to assess the influence of politics and law on the judges who shaped the outcome of this historical controversy.

About the Author

Howard Gillman is a professor of political science and law at the University of Southern California. He is the author of The Constitution Besieged, winner of the Pritchett Award for best book in public law, and editor (with Cornell Clayton) of Supreme Court Decision-Making, also published by the University of Chicago Press.
