This book examines all major aspects of the highest court in the nation, from the selection of justices and agenda creation to the decision-making process and the Court's impact on government and U.S. society. Delving deeply into personalities and procedures, author Lawrence Baum provides a balanced explanation of the Court's actions and the behaviour of its justices as he reveals its complexity, reach, and influence. This new edition gives particular attention to current developments such as the impact of political polarization on the Court, the justices' increasingly public roles, and recent rulings on same-sex marriage and health care.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The Supreme Court is suitable for both graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses. Baum does a great job of exemplifying complex ideas in straightforward language. The book's mixture of resources and represented methodologies provides me with the flexibility to approach core topics in a variety of different ways and to show students different approaches at work."

-- Luke Plotica

"I have used every edition of this book through the years. It is exceptionally well written and presented in a way that is quite accessible to undergraduate students. Baum carefully updates each edition to reflect new research and our expanding knowledge of the Court and its operation. I'm confident that, by the end of the course, my students know everything they need to know about the Court."

-- Will McLauchlan
