Written expressly for a student audience, this core text has a non-ideological theme - the tension between the Supreme Court's power of judicial review and the democratic, majoritarian features of American government. This allows the reader to examine the place of the Court in the broader context of American society and the American system of democratic self-government. Seven case studies show constitutional litigation in action.
