How Courts Impact Federal Administrative Behavior, Hardback Book

How Courts Impact Federal Administrative Behavior Hardback

Part of the Routledge Studies in North American Politics series


What impact do federal courts have on the administrative agencies of the federal government?

How do agencies react to the decisions of federal courts?

This book answers these questions by examining the responses of federal agencies to the U.S.

Courts of Appeals, revealing what happens inside agencies after courts rule against them.

Robert J. Hume draws upon dozens of interviews with current and former administrators, taking readers behind the scenes of these organizations to reveal their internal procedures, their attitudes about courts, and their surprising capacity to be influenced by a judge's choice of words.

This fascinating study will be of interest to students and scholars of politics as well as those seeking great understanding of the intricacies of the US political system.
