The U.S. Supreme Court and the electoral process
Georgetown University Press, 2000 - 322 страници
In recent years, the U.S. Supreme Court has considered the constitutionality of a wide range of questions involving voting and elections, representation, and political participation. Yet until now, these powerful rulings that define how our political processes work have been made and analyzed only on a case-by-case basis.In this book, academics and practitioners in both law and political science examine major themes raised by the role of Supreme Court decisions in shaping the electoral process. Both challenging and supporting Court actions, these diverse viewpoints show how Court actions mold not only our electoral politics but also constitutional doctrine and fundamental concepts of democracy. Specific cases concern racial redistricting, term limits, political patronage, campaign finance regulations, third party ballot access, and state ballot initiatives limiting civil liberties -- issues that that directly affect how we choose those who govern us.
