This is the first in-depth analysis of the Rehnquist Court viewed as a functional entity. Well known for his work in constitutional law, Stanley Friedelbaum analyzes leading cases and rigorously examines the Court's full opinions. He reviews the interaction between the Justices and points to the patterns of the Court as a new centralist coalition comes to control critical policymaking relating to abortion, the right to die, affirmative action, reverse discrimination, and privacy interests. A table of important cases and a bibliography enhance this short study for general readers and for students in introductory constitutional law courses and in advanced courses in judicial politics and American government.

Editorial Reviews

?...It is a readable book. The author's opinions are documented with recent case decisions. The reader will find it hard to quarrel with his conclusions. Freidelbaum's text is recommended to any academician who studies or teaches the United States Supreme Court. ...It is Friedelbaum's conclusion that the Rehnquist Court will bring gradual judicial changes--slowly and studiously. The Court will remain collectively a conservative body. It will not strive to effect change dramatically. And in so doing, it is Freidelbaum's point of pinnacle signigicance that the Rehnquist Court will continue to exercise constitutionally responsible leadership. Excellent reading!??Southeastern Political Review
