Now in its 12th year, this acclaimed annual publication brings together leading national scholars to analyze the Supreme Court's most important decisions from the term just ended and to preview the year ahead. The Cato Supreme Court Review is unlike any other publication that follows the work of the Court: • It is timely. An in-depth review, it appears less than three months after the Court's term ends and before the new term begins. • Although widely cited by legal experts, its articles are aimed at, and accessible to, nonattorneys interested in the work of the Court. • Crucial to its exceptional coverage, the Review takes a Madisonian perspec-tive-grounded in the nation's first principles of liberty and limited government. Cases critiqued in the 2012-2013 edition include those involving international human rights, racial preferences in higher education, and the Voting Rights Act, as well as cutting edge issues of criminal procedure, property rights, and class actions. There's also an important regulatory case concerning a bizarre New Deal-era raisin-marketing law. A point-counterpoint on the patenting of human genes will be presented, and finally, the Review will analyze this term's gay rights cases, one challenging the Defense of Marriage Act and the other taking up California's Proposition 8.
