Political factors influence judicial decisions. Arguments and input from lawyers and interest groups, the ebb and flow of public opinion, and especially the ideological and behavioral inclinations of the justices all combine to shape the development of constitutional doctrine.

With meticulous revising, authors Lee Epstein and Thomas G. Walker streamline material while accounting for recent landmark cases and new scholarship.
