Book News
A critique of the US Supreme Court's constitutional theory of representation, arguing that the Court's "group-based" approach undermines its role as guardian of representative government. Ryden (political science, Hope College) details the Court's influence (and impoverishment of) redistricting, campaign finance, ballot access, patronage, and party primaries. The author offers a new theory of representation, and meticulous research into the area of constitutional law and politics. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
