Summary
"Who should have the last word on fundamental policy issues? This book analyzes the rise of two contenders - the people, through direct democracy, and the courts. It demonstrates that courts have used an expanding power of judicial review to invalidate citizen-enacted laws at remarkably high rates. The resulting conflict between the people and the courts threatens to produce a backlash against judges and raises profound questions about the proper scope of popular sovereignty and judicial power in a constitutional system."--[from book]
