Scholarship on judicial politics is rich, varied, and constantly improving. New research on organized interests, increasing attention to courts at the state level, evaluation of new appointment processes for judges, and a close look at the civil liberties and rights challenges in the wake of 9/11 all find their way onto the pages of this new edition. The authors attempt to present not only a comprehensive survey of the American judicial system, but an assessment of the interrelation between the courts and public policy. The sixth edition also features the authors' analysis of the ideological direction of judicial opinions during the current Bush administration.

"Under what conditions will successful nonviolent revolutions lead to democratization? While the scholarly literature has shown that nonviolent resistance has a positive effect on a country's level of democracy, little research to date has disaggregated this population to explain which cases of successful nonviolent resistance lead to democracy and which do not. This book presents a theory of democratization in transitions initiated by nonviolent resistance based on the successful resolution of two central strategic challenges: maintaining high transitional mobilization and avoiding institutionally destructive maximalism. I test the theory first on a dataset of every transition from authoritarian rule in the post-World War II period and second with three in-depth case studies informed by interviews with key decision-makers in Nepal, Zambia, and Brazil. The testing supports the importance of high mobilization and low maximalism. Both have strong, consistent effects on democratization after nonviolent resistance"--

"Voices of Dissent offers critical essays on American politics that go beyond the debate between mainstream liberalism and conservatism to fundamentally challenge the status quo. Emphasizing the tensions between democracy and corporate capitalism, Voices of Dissent, Second Edition explores such questions as the bias of the media, ecology and the market economy, and the impact of class, race, and gender divisions on American political life. This anthology is based on a broad concept of politics that situates traditional American political institutions and processes in the context of political economy, ideology, and the state. This structural approach helps to deepen our understanding of the very meaning of politics. Finally, Voices of Dissent, Second Edition goes beyond analysis and critique to challenge readers to confront the implications of our critical perspective for their responsibility as citizens and to think creatively about new forms of political participation."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
