Overview

As constitutional scholar John Nowak noted when this classic book was first published, "Professor Choper's 'Judicial Review and the National Political Process' is mandatory reading for anyone seriously attempting to study our constitutional system of government. It is an important assessment of the democratic process and the theoretical and practical role of the Supreme Court."

That view is no less true today, as borne out by the countless citations to this landmark work over the decades. It is simply part of the foundational canon of constitutional law and political theory--an essential part of the library of scholars, students, and educated readers interested in considering the hard choices inherent in what the courts should decide and how they should decide them.

Jesse Choper takes seriously the challenging idea that many political questions should not be subject to judicial review at all, but rather should be left to the other branches or to the federalist system to work out. Exploring the pragmatic and democratic reasons to reconsider Supreme Court power over constitutional infighting among national branches or between the state and national governments, he lays out a vision of efficacy and modesty in the Court's reach that has influenced legal scholarship since the book was first published by the University of Chicago Press. The book received the Order of the Coif Triennial Book Award in 1982.
