Summary
"Judicial selection has been contentious at numerous junctures in American history, but it has reached new heights of acrimony and dysfunction in recent years. In this important book, two leading authorities on Congress and the courts explore the politics of selecting federal judges in the United States - a process beset by deepening partisan polarization and deterioration of the practice of advice and consent."--BOOK JACKET
