Supreme Court Appointments & Nominations Hardback
Edited by Edward P. Bennett
The appointment of a Supreme Court Justice is an event of major significance in American politics.
Each appointment is of consequence because of the enormous judicial power the Supreme Court exercises as the highest appellate court in the federal judiciary.
Appointments are usually infrequent, as a vacancy on the nine-member Court may occur only once or twice, or never at all, during a particular President's years in office.
This book examines the Supreme Court appointment and nominations process.
