The Rehnquist Court : A Retrospective
In 1986, the Supreme Court's leading conservative William H. Rehnquist, labelled by Newsweek as 'The Court's Mr. Right' was made Chief Justice. Almost immediately, legal scholars, practitioners, and pundits began questioning what his influence would be, and would he remake our constitutional corpus in his own image? Would the centre hold, or fold? This collected volume, which follows in the series edited by the late Bernard Schwartz, includes The Warren Court and The Burger Court, and contains the work of a varied body of scholars and practitioners. It includes an overview of the Rehnquist Court's influence to date, a detailed examination of the seminal issues confronted by the Court, and places the Court in broad historical perspective. Some of the issues examined in detail are First Amendment rights and cyberspace, criminal justice reform, the Court's pattern of constitutional interpretation, the international impact of the Rehnquist Court, and The Supreme Court's increasing interaction with state constitutional law.
