عنوان: Rationing the Constitution: How Judicial Capacity Shapes Supreme Court Decision-Making
قیمت: 7,800 تومان
Compared with the vast machinery surrounding Congress and the president, the Supreme Court is a tiny institution that can resolve only a small fraction of the constitutional issues that arise in any given year. Rationing the Constitution shows that this simple yet frequently ignored fact is essential to understanding how the Supreme Court makes constitutional law.
Due to the structural organization of the judiciary and certain widely shared professional norms, the capacity of the Supreme Court to review lower-court decisions is severely limited. From this fact, Andrew Coan develops a novel and arresting theory of Supreme Court decision-making. In deciding cases, the Court must not invite more litigation than it can handle. On many of the most important constitutional questions―touching on federalism, the separation of powers, and individual rights―this constraint creates a strong pressure to adopt hard-edged categorical rules, or defer to the political process, or both.
