Editorial Reviews

?The editors of this volume bring together an assortment of essays that examine several dimensions of policymaking undertaken by the state supreme courts. An introductory chapter prefaces the concerns of this book, and an excellent and very handy bibliographic essay concludes it. The eight substantive articles in between explore a range of issues including the common law of torts, state judicial administration, exclusionary zoning cases, compliance with directives from the United States Supreme Court, and other interesting matters. The book is well constructed and should command a wide reading.... Its essays are informative, and they are well written and comprehensive. Furthermore, the rich diversity of its coverage does not diminish the excellent organizational structure of the volume. The editors have produced a solid whole.?-Political Science Quarterly
