Judges on judging: views from the bench

by David O'Brien. CQ Press. 3rd edition. 2009.
372 pages.

This collection of essays aims to provide insight into the role of the judiciary and to unmask a little of what the editor describes as the least well known branch of government. Each of the 34 chapters was written by a judge, and the authors range from Supreme Court justices (Roberts, Stevens, Ginsburg, Scalia, Rehnquist) to judges from the US Courts of Appeal, District Courts, and state courts. The scope of this book is quite broad, with topics ranging from trial court judges' experiences to judicial activism and judicial restraint to "What I Ate for Breakfast and Other Mysteries of Judicial Decision Making." A recommended read for legal professionals as well as laypeople interested in the judicial process.
