This book analyzes the politics of judicial selection in seven states from an interest group perspective. It is unique in that it offers a multi-state comparative study in a previously neglected field of political science. Champagne and Haydel and the contributors are scholars interested in state judicial reform and have tried to develop findings on single states into a book which allows the reader to examine developments and patterns of reform movements in several states. Rather than viewing judicial selection as a "good government" issue, the book explores who gets what and how from selection politics.
