Hmpf. Using the Supreme Court to understand the legal stystem can be like trying to understand parliamentary democracy by studying the House of Lords.

No, no, I jest. It would be interesting to figure out particular interpretive techniques and their rise and fall on the Court (and in other courts). That's hard to do. But I thought that Fred Schauer and Virginia Wise had an interesting study on the rise of the use of non-legal sources in adjudication. Their technique permits searching the text for words and phrases, and doing old school media studies style content analyses. I could see that providing some insights.
