Reviews and Awards
"With lots of footnotes, plenty of charts and graphs, and the expected numbers-crunching, Courtroom Democracy and Minority Rights is clearly intended for fellow academics, grad students, and senior political science majors. However, a general reader can learn plenty from the book." -- Blake Maddux, DigBoston.com
"The state same-sex marriage cases offer lessons about the capacities of state courts to bring about dramatic policy changes (lessons that Hume derives from solid research and skillful analysis of existing and his own original data). In addition, Hume offers a plausible argument that state courts were the catalysts that made same-sex marriage possible." -- Philip A. Dynia, The Law and Politics Book Review
