The Politics of the US Supreme Court is the first introductory analysis of the Supreme Court, both as institution and political force, to be written by a non-American political scientist for a student readership. It presents the unique institution of the Supreme Court consciously and in manageable form for students who have not grown up within the American judicial system; for the American reader it will provide a challenging and refreshing political outsider view to contrast with the predominantly legally based academic literature. Second, the breath and distance of the author's perspective enables him to offer an elegant and tightly argued synthesis and examination of the Court's historical and present-day role in the development of the Constitution, its decision-making processes, and its relationship with the executive and legislative branches of government and with the American people.
