Students of government looking for a succinct book dealing with the basics of our judicial system will find that this is just the resource they need. In addition to describing the different types of judges and courts, questions regarding how judges are chosen, elected, appointed, and approved are addressed. Education is also discussed, including how much science and economic training judges need for dealing with today's issues. The chapter about the Supreme Court's traditions and rituals enlightens and refreshes with its presentation of the "jury service revolution." Mayer's sober writing can cause readers to rethink and reexamine notions and ideas about law and how our court system functions and has evolved.
