The Supreme Court and Congress

September 2008 | 447 pages | CQ Press

An insightful exploration of the constantly evolving relationship between the Court and Congress 

The Supreme Court and Congress explores how the Court operates in relation to legislative action, as well as how it has defined the extent and limits of congressional power. Individual chapters trace conflicts between branches over the power of judicial review and other key separation of powers issues, civil rights for African Americans and women, individual liberties, and regulation of the national economy. Essays and documents also examine the different interpretations of the Constitution by the judicial and legislative branches, and how the resulting dialogue helps reconcile constitutional interpretation with democratic government.
