Well, I hear this is an excellent book.

But it doesn't take a colloquial approach to activism. It identifies categories of activism (such as striking down federal statutes, state statutes, executive decisions, overruling precedent) and looks at each of the justices' votes.

It doesn't attempt to capture all possible forms of activism, because we strive for objectivity in measures but does try to capture the most common forms.

Does anyone know how they code the activism of Bush v Gore participants?
