The Power of Precedent

Michael J. Gerhardt

  • First comprehensive study to focus on the concept of precedent to appear in several decades
  • Timely topic: the concept of precedent has been and continues to be a hotly contested issue for the Supreme Court and among politicos
  • Interdisciplinary interest-the concept of precedent will interest political scientists who are interested in law, courts, and American political development
