Reviews

“This research effort is an important contribution to our collective knowledge because it confirms our understanding that inter-institutional conflict in a system of separation of powers is a constant that we cannot ignore. A growing body of comparative research indicates that other governments featuring a separation of powers configuration encounter similar conflicts. Through this book, James Prescott teaches us the importance of paying attention to the budgetary process as part of judicial politics.” – Prof. Albert P. Melone, Southern Illinois University
