Life moves pretty fast and keeping up with all that goes on in a field as exciting as judicial politics is difficult. Epstein and Lindquist have assembled an all-star team of leading researchers, who have produced accessible essays that both inform readers about the topic and offer innovative ideas for future research. This volume provides a tremendous service to both scholars and students in the discipline and should be read by anyone with even a passing interest in judicial behavior. * Ryan C.
