Summary
The choices the Supreme Court makes in taking their cases casts an important part of each individual justice's jurisprudence. This book attaches case selection on the high court to a broader institutional context that incorporates the goals of individual justices, other branches of government, and the evolution of the court's power over time. Udi Sommer provides compelling evidence (such as the correspondence between justices and their clerks) which indicates that on a range of issues - from abortion and federalism to gun rights and campaign finance - justices strategically choose to review certain cases and not others. Furthermore, cutting-edge quantitative methodologies show that such strategic behavior is systematic. Supreme Court Agenda Setting relates the question of agenda setting to the broader issue of the role of the Supreme Court within American politics and society at large, providing a vital analysis of modern Court behavior
