Beschreibung

Since her appointment as the first woman to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, Justice Sandra Day O'Connor has had a major, but largely unrecognized, influence on the collective jurisprudence of the Burger and Rehnquist Courts. In this comprehensive and systematic analysis of O'Connor's judicial contributions, Nancy Maveety describes how O'Connor has used accommodationist decision-making strategies to make substantive contributions to the development of both constitutional law and the Court's norms of collegiality. Skeptical of interpretations that seek to impose feminist conventions on O'Connor's judicial behavior, this account combines biographical data with an analytical discussion of O'Connor's crucial decisions. This is important reading for anyone interested in the Supreme Court and contemporary jurisprudence.

Pressestimmen

This book has theory and data valuable to scholars interested in judicial decision making at any level. Law and Politics Book Review The definitive study on O'Connor's jurisprudence. Perspectives On Political Science A well-crafted, penetrating analysis of Justice O'Connor's voting behavior and opinion-writing tendencies that moves well beyond prior studies which focus primarily on O'Connor's gender rather than her judicial philosophy. The book offers an intriguing insight into the dynamics of how Justice O'Connor uses her accommodationist philosophy to exert influence over the Court in several key policy-making areas, such as abortion, religious freedoms, and racial equality. -- Robert C. Bradley, Illinois State University ...useful and well-conceived account... -- I. Scott Messinger, New York University H-Net: Humanities and Social Science Reviews Online Unquestionably, there is much here which is helpful and illuminating ... I would certainly have this book in my library. -- Richard Hooder Williams, University of Bristol Political Studies Review, Sept. '99; Vol. 47 No. 4 Professor Maveety's book refreshingly shifts the focus of judicial biography from hagiography to a sensitive appraisal of relevant political and behavioral considerations. -- Harold J. Spaeth, Michigan State University
