About the book

Now in its 10th year, this acclaimed annual publication brings together leading national scholars to analyze the Supreme Court's most important decisions from the term just ended and preview the year ahead. The Cato Supreme Court Review is unlike any other publication that follows the work of the Court:

• It is timely. An in-depth review, it appears less than three months after the Court's term ends and before the new term begins.
• Although directed to legal experts, its articles are fully accessible to non-attorneys interested in the work of the Court.
• Crucial to its exceptional coverage, the Review takes a Madisonian perspective-grounded in the nation's first principles, liberty and limited government.

Cases critiqued in the 2010-2011 edition include high-profile First Amendment disputes involving offensive funeral protests, violent video games, school choice tax credits, and the public financing of elections; an immigration-related challenge to an Arizona employment-verification law; a global warming-related public nuisance lawsuit; and a host of important cases in the areas of federalism, commercial speech, business law, and criminal procedure. In addition, this 10th anniversary edition includes an introductory retrospective by Roger Pilon of the Review's first decade, looking at how the constitutional debate has changed over the period.
