About This Book

Law is Politics. Professors Ronald Collins and David Skover, two noted constitutionalists, explore that proposition. With narrative flair and crafted with nuanced skill, the authors portray law and the politicized judicial art much as Niccolò Machiavelli explained power and the ruling art. The result is The Judge - a fresh, learned, and eye-opening work like no other.
