Thomas G. Hansford & James F. Spriggs, II

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ENDORSEMENTS:

"This is the most important book ever written regarding legal change in the Supreme Court. It will change the dialogue on this topic. The authors address a crucial question and relate it to two of the three theoretical models that currently interest Supreme Court scholars."--Saul Brenner, University of North Carolina, Charlotte, coauthor of Stare Indecisis: Alteration of Precedent on the Supreme Court, 1946-1992

"This book makes an important contribution to the understanding of judicial behavior. Its authors carefully develop their theory and apply it to the treatment of precedent in an elegant way that leads to clear predictions about the Supreme Court's behavior."--Lawrence Baum, Ohio State University, author of The Supreme Court and American Courts: Process and Policy
