John Brigham:
The Cult Of The Court - used book

ISBN: 0877228280

ID: 6532128

In recent years widespread attention has been focused on decisions handed down by the Supreme Court that grapple with passionate issues: integration, school prayer, abortion, affirmative action. The appointment of new justices is a highly charged political event although the Court is supposed to be "above" politics. Amidst the bicentennial celebration of the Constitution and almost daily reports of major confrontations awaiting the highest court's judicial review, John Brigham presents a fresh and innovative examination of the U.S. Supreme Court as the final arbiter of constitutional interpretation. Drawing on philosophy and anthropology, "The Cult of the Court" offers a social scientific investigation of an institution whose authority has come to be taken for granted. The author emphasizes that the Court is an institution and that its authority is founded less in the claim of legal expertise than in hierarchical finality - the assertion of political will, not of legal judgment. He shows how the Court has supplanted the Constitution as the authority in our political world and that what makes legal "sense" is affected by these factors of institutionalization, bureaucratization, and court-dominated constitutionalism. Author note: John Brigham, Professor of Political Science at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, is the author of four other books, including "Property and the Politics of Entitlement" (Temple). courts,education and reference,government,judicial branch,law,national,political science,politics and government,politics and social sciences,public affairs and policy Law, Temple University Press
