Editor Margaret Haerens compiled several fascinating essays that take opposing views over issues relating to the Supreme Court. Readers will evaluate whether the Supreme Court is an effective check on the Executive branch. One essay states that the Supreme Court should not decide the rights of enemy combatants while another essay states it is a matter for judicial review. One essay examines what some conservative justices have done for political reasons while another essay states that liberals exercise too much control over the U.S. judiciary. Sodomy laws are debated, as is the role of religion, and Roe versus Wade. Readers will evaluate term limits for the justices, and the role of each justice's political ideology. Foreign court decisions are also evaluated, giving your readers a truly deep and well-balanced view.
