Working within the framework of law and politics, JUDICIAL PROCESS combines detailed information about the major structures and processes of the American judiciary with an insider's understanding of the importance of courthouse dynamics. From the organization and procedures of the various courts to the current applications of specific laws, this text explores the roles and impact of the judicial system. Throughout the text, the authors not only explain what the legal rules are but also explore each rule's underlying assumptions, history, and goals--for a complete and balanced look at the role of the judicial system today.

David William Neubauer received his B.A. in political science in 1966 from Augustana College in Rock Island, and he undertook graduate work at the University of Illinois, receiving his Ph.D. in 1971. He has taught at the University of Florida, Washington University in St. Louis, and most recently at the University of New Orleans. Dr. Neubauer regularly teaches Judicial Process, General American Politics, and Criminal Justice. In addition to this best-selling text, AMERICA'S COURTS AND THE CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM, he is the author of DEBATING CRIME: RHETORIC AND REALITY, and BATTLE SUPREME: THE CONFIRMATION OF CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS AND THE FUTURE OF THE SUPREME COURT, all from Wadsworth. His articles have appeared in "Law and Society Review," "Judicature," "Policy Studies Journal," "Law and Policy Quarterly," "Justice Systems Journal," "Justice Quarterly," and other journals. Dr. Neubauer's current research interests include nominations to the Supreme Court and religion in public life.

Stephen S. Meinhold is Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where he teaches classes on Judicial Politics, Constitutional Law, the Presidency, and Research Methods. Dr. Meinhold recently published the new Wadsworth title BATTLE SUPREME: THE CONFIRMATION OF CHIEF JUSTICE JOHN ROBERTS AND THE FUTURE OF THE SUPREME COURT. Professor Meinhold's current research focuses on college students' use of attorneys, their plans to attend law school, and their attitudes about the legal system. He has published articles in POLITICAL RESEARCH QUARTERLY, SOCIAL SCIENCE QUARTERLY, JUSTICE SYSTEM JOURNAL, and PS: POLITICAL SCIENCE AND POLITICS.
