TITLE: First Among Equals: The Supreme Court in American Life by Kenneth W. Starr (Hardcover)

PRICE: Please inquire, if interested.
CONDITION: Like new.  Minor shelf/handling wear to dust cover.
CODE: ASRHS

SYNOPSIS: Today's United States Supreme Court consists of nine intriguingly varied justices and one overwhelming contradiction: Compared to its revolutionary predecessor, the Rehnquist Court appears deceptively passive, yet it stands as dramatically ready to defy convention as the Warren Court of the 1950s and 60s. Now Kenneth W. Starr-who served as clerk for one chief justice, argued twenty-five cases as solicitor general before the Supreme Court, and is widely regarded as one of the nation's most distinguished practitioners of constitutional law-offers us an incisive and unprecedented look at the paradoxes, the power, and the people of the highest court in the land. In FIRST AMONG EQUALS Ken Starr traces the evolution of the Supreme Court from its beginnings, examines major Court decisions of the past three decades, and uncovers the sometimes surprising continuity between the precedent-shattering Warren Court and its successors under Burger and Rehnquist 320 pages.

SYNOPSIS: The messy presidential election of 2000 was not yet over before a number of intellectuals, politicians, and journalists were calling, once again, for the abolition of the Electoral College. The institution was, they claimed, an anachronism, an archaic remnant from a less enlightened time before we all believed in the tenets of direct democracy. But is the Electoral College really a useless and outmoded institution? The distinguished contributors to this instructive volume--including Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Michael Barone, and Walter Berns--show why it would be folly to abolish the Electoral College by explaining not only its historical and cultural significance, but also its contemporary role in instilling a measure of stability and sanity to our electoral and party systems. With an appendix that includes seminal historical material related to the establishment and defense of the Electoral College, this is the definitive volume for all those interested in the logic--and continuing importance--of this unique American political institution. ISBN: 188292665X
