Judicial Process : Law, Courts and Politics in the United States
Working within the framework of law and politics, JUDICIAL PROCESS focuses on the dynamics of the courthouse. The fundamental purpose of this text is to provide readers with a working knowledge of the major structures and process that underlie the American judiciary. The structure of the courts, the nature of how the laws apply, and the procedures followed all have important consequences for the way the courts deliver justice. This book attempts to help the reader understand not only the legal rules, but also the assumptions underlying these rules, the history of how they evolved, and the goals they seek to achieve.

"Neubauer presents the text's topics and selection in a sensible and intellectually defensible manner. ... I consider his text to be the best, most comprehensive stand-alone judicial process text available today. Neubauer's expertise on the judicial process is evident on almost every topic covered in the text; especially in the chapters on trial courts in the criminal and civil contexts."
