The Pioneers of Judicial Behavior

Nancy Maveety, Editor
Examines the contributions of the "pioneers" of research into judicial behavior


The Pioneers of Judicial Behavior offers an intellectual history of an earlier, "pioneering" generation of scholars to delineate key questions about the nature of judicial decision-making. The volume critically assesses the contributions of fifteen foundational judicial scholars: Cook, Corwin, Dahl, Danelski, Howard, Mason, McCloskey, Murphy, Pritchett, Rhode, Schubert, Shapiro, Spaeth, Tanenhaus, and Ulmer.

Nancy Maveety is Associate Professor of Political Science at Tulane University.

Praise / Awards

  • ". . . Nancy Maveety is to be highly commended for engineering an eminently readable and coherent intellectual history of some of the major contours and contests of the sub-field. . . . at the risk of appearing to be an insufficiently critical reviewer, I recommend that readers should find no issue with the assertion that this is a gem of a book."
    —Ira L. Strauber, Grinnell College, The Law and Politics Book Review, June 2003
