9780791402955: Rationalizing Justice: The Political Economy of Federal District Courts (Suny Series, Sociology of Work)

This book connects the history and organization of the federal district courts to the emergence of a new technocratic form of justice. The centerpiece of this study is the clash between adjudication -- the traditional model of dispute resolution -- and the introduction of modern management techniques.
From the perspective of the federal trial courts, the authors examine the tension between adjudication and administration. They show dramatic changes in the nature of judicial decision-making and the emergence of new forms of court organization. These changes signal a potential crisis of the judicial system, and Heydebrand and Seron provide insights into its nature and direction, and the immense structural forces underlying the administration of justice in America.

Review:

This is exceptionally competent scholarship about a topic of current interest and enduring importance. The evidence is presented in a compelling manner. The topic is very significant for the sociology of law, organizations, and work. I believe that this can be a landmark study in each of these large areas of the field. Richard H. Hall, State University of New York, Albany
This is a significant topic. The post-industrial nature of American society in the 1980s, replete with its emphasis on professionalization and bureaucratization, has had an impact on American courts that has been insufficiently examined. The authors make a significant contribution to the discipline. John Kenneth White, The Catholic University of America"
