Congress Confronts the Court
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Supreme Court is often portrayed as an isolated entity void of politics that reaches judgments by some unseen and unkowable logic. At the same time, Congress is cast as a singularly political enterprise with little regard for nuanced lawmaking. This volume of essays shows both branches in a new light. The essays explore the impact of sustained partisan politics, the reassertion of legislative power at the expense of judicial review and the sometimes stormy relationship between Congress and the Court.
