The US political system is designed to ensure that freedom and opportunity will always be protected, by making it almost impossible for power to become concentrated in the hands of a few people seeking to run society for their own benefit. Have these aims been achieved?The answer is that Americans have sharply contrasting views on how well their political system works. They disagreed with each other when they established the system at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 and have continued to disagree ever since. This book covers the key issues, political systems and governing institutions at the heart of these disagreements, outlining the thinking behind the main points of view, to help its readers decide for themselves which viewpoint they find most persuasive.This new edition of the best-selling introduction to US Government and Politics has been completely revised and updated to reflect the changes in the area since the election of the new President.

"We are introduced to the meaning and scope of human rights and civil liberties, the reasons for their recognition and enforcement, the machinery available for redress and, equally importantly, the reasons why such rights and liberties need to be restricted and the limitations thereof. These themes form the basis of the first Part of the text. Specific areas of civil liberties, such as freedom of expression, privacy and prisoners' rights, are studied in that context in the second Part, allowing the student to appreciate the tension between human rights and civil liberties and their legal protection, and to develop an understanding of the techniques used in domestic and international law to balance such liberties with other rights and interests."--BOOK JACKET.

The judicial process

an introductory analysis of the courts of the United States, England, and France

Category: Law

Page: 624

View: 2035

Written by one of the nation's most astute observers of the court, this classic text examines the theory, practice, and people behind the judicial process. The new seventh edition brings the work completely up to date by examining important developments and structural changes in these three judicial systems, up through the end of 1997, including judicial appointments during the Bush and Clinton administrations; significant alterations in the structure and organization of the United States, British, French, and other European courts, with an emphasis on the ongoing changes in the judiciary of the United Kingdom; and the collateral developments on the frontiers of judicial review procedures as well as the judicial role. At once comparative, expository, analytical, and evaluative, this new edition of The Judicial Process illuminates even more vividly the judiciary's political, legal, and governmental roles, examining closely that much debated but little understood line between "judicial activism" and "judicial restraint."
