Judicial Review and Contemporary Democratic Theory


So, it happens that djw and I wrote a book, and conveniently it is now available for purchase. We will have more about it over the next month, but it’s an assessment of the democratic legitimacy of judicial review that urges a comparison of judicial review with other veto points, with the startling conclusion that the democratic value of judicial review is…highly contingent. Anyway, consider picking up a copy if you’re interested in the subject or want a really cool cover for your coffee table.

…to answer the question in comments, the cover art is from Lorenzetti’s The Allegory of Good and Bad Government.
