The Political Question Doctrine and the Supreme Court of the United States

by Nada Mourtada-Sabbah (Editor), Bruce E. Cain (Editor)

Historically, the political question doctrine has held the courts from resolving constitutional issues that are better left to other departments of government, as a way of maintaining the system of checks and balances. However, this book discusses the gradual changes in the parameters of the doctrine, including its current position dealing with increasingly extraterritorial concerns.
