The Judicial Branch

Edited by Kermit L. Hall and Kevin T. McGuire

Institutions of American Democracy

Edited by Kermit L. Hall and Kevin T. McGuire, this collection of essays examines the role of the judicial branch in American democracy and the dynamic between the other branches of government, compares international models, and discusses possible measures for reform. The contributors consider the impact of courts on American life and address such central questions as: Is the Supreme Court an institution of social justice? Is there a case for judicially created and protected social rights? Have the courts become sovereign when interpreting the Constitution?
