Judicial Process and Judicial Policymaking / Edition 2by G. Alan Tarr
Pub. Date: 07/28/1998
Publisher: Cengage Learning
The author presents a policy focus in his discussion of judicial process. Rather than limit the text to coverage of the U.S. Supreme Court, he examines the judiciary as the third branch of government. He also asks students to evaluate the organization, function, and impact of the courts on and within government.
