From the Publisher"Measuring Judicial Activism is a serious, scholarly work that nearly all academic law libraries will want to purchase." — Law Library Review
"Lindquist and Cross seek to move beyond subjective debates about judicial activism on the US Supreme Court by conceptualizing activism in nonideological terms, identifying specific empirical dimensions to the concept, and measuring those dimensions using systematic techniques. Examining the Court's exercise of judicial review to invalidate legislative and executive action and the justices' willingness to expand the Court's power by granting litigants increased access to the courts, they assess the relative activism of recent justices on the Court."
