About this book

Each year, the Supreme Court of the United States announces new rulings with deep consequences for our lives. This second volume in Palgrave’s SCOTUS series explains and contextualizes the landmark cases of the US Supreme Court in the term ending 2019. With a close look at cases involving key issues and debates in American politics and society, SCOTUS 2019 tackles the Court's rulings on the census citizenship question, partisan gerrymandering, religious monuments, the death penalty, race in jury selection, double jeopardy, jury trials for reimprisonment during supervised release, Fourth Amendment protection for blood alcohol tests, deference to federal agencies, excessive fines under the Eighth Amendment and more. Written by notable scholars in political science and law, the chapters in SCOTUS 2019 present the details of each ruling, its meaning for constitutional debate, and its impact on public policy or partisan politics. Finally, SCOTUS 2019 offers an analysis of the controversial Justice Brett Kavanaugh's first term in office, as well as a big-picture look at the implications of the Court's decisions for the direction of this new Roberts Court.

Reviews

“This compact volume is invaluable to anyone looking to get up to speed on the Supreme Court’s most recent major rulings. The individual chapters, all written in lively, clear prose, provide a nuanced look at how the Roberts Court, with the conservative edge provided by Justices Gorsuch and Kavanaugh, is navigating constitutional terrain in some surprising ways. Highly recommended for teachers, students, and anyone concerned about the critical role the third branch plays in structuring federalism, rights, federal power, and inter-branch relations.” (Julie Novkov, Professor of Political Science and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University at Albany, SUNY)

SCOTUS 2019 makes a major contribution to the contemporary study of the Supreme Court. Klein and Marietta have assembled a diverse and top-notch group of scholars to provide fresh insights on the Court’s most significant decisions and the first term of Justice Kavanaugh. It is a must-read for those interested in the modern Supreme Court.” (Paul M. Collins, Jr., Professor and Director of Legal Studies at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst)
