Most widely held works by Jeffrey Allan Segal
Advice and consent : the politics of judicial appointments by Lee Epstein( )

15 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book describes how presidents and the Senate have tried to remake the bench, ranging from FDR's controversial "court packing" scheme to the Senate's creation in 1978 of 35 new appellate and 117 district court judgeships, allowing the Democrats to shape the judiciary for years. The authors conclude with a look at whether presidents succeed in their efforts to appoint judges who will carry their philosophies into the next generation."--Jacket
Majority rule or minority will : adherence to precedent on the U.S. Supreme Court by Harold J Spaeth( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the influence of precedent on the behavior of U.S. Supreme Court justices throughout the Court's history. Under the assumption that for precedent to be an influence on the behavior of justices it must lead to a result they would not otherwise have reached, the results show that when justices disagree with the establishment of a precedent, they rarely shift from their previously stated views in subsequent cases. In other words, they are hardly ever influenced by precedent. Nevertheless, the doctrine of stare decisis does exhibit some low-level influence on the justices in the least salient of the Court's decisions. The book examines these findings in light of several leading theories of judicial decision making."--Jacket
The Supreme Court in the American legal system by Jeffrey Allan Segal( Book )

11 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the American legal system, including a comprehensive treatment of the U.S. Supreme Court. Despite this treatment, the in of the title deserves emphasis, for the authors extensively examine lower courts, providing separate chapters on state courts, the U.S. District Courts, and the U.S. Courts of Appeals. The book analyzes these courts from a legal/extralegal framework, drawing different conclusions about the relative influence of each based on institutional structures and empirical evidence. The book is also tied together through its attention to the relationship between lower courts and the Supreme Court. Additionally, Election 2000 litigation provides a common substantive topic linking many of the chapters. Finally, it provides extended coverage of the legal process, with separate chapters on civil procedure, evidence, and criminal procedure."--Jacket
The Supreme Court and the attitudinal model revisited by Jeffrey Allan Segal( Book )

18 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, authored by two leading scholars of the Supreme Court and its policy making, systematically presents and validates the use of the attitudinal model to explain and predict Supreme Court decision making. In the process, it critiques the two major alternative approaches to Supreme Court decision making: the legal and rational choice models."--Jacket
The Supreme Court and the attitudinal model by Jeffrey Allan Segal( Book )

9 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Senate elections by Alan Abramowitz( Book )

5 editions published between 1992 and 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Why does the U.S. House of Representatives remain in Democratic hands regardless of the prevailing political climate, while the Senate shifts back and forth? Why are voters more likely to vote for House incumbents than Senate incumbents, regardless of partisanship? Alan I. Abramowitz and Jeffrey A. Segal present a compelling case that Senate elections have become much more competitive than House elections and thus the Senate has become more responsive to shifts in the national political climate than has the House. The authors employ sophisticated methods of analysis to evaluate the impact of such factors as the history of the form and function of the Senate; attitudes and behavior of voters in Senate elections; the state of the economy; the popularity of incumbent candidates; campaign spending; and television advertising. The authors show that the uncertain electoral environment faced by Senate candidates has contributed to a more consensual style of leadership and a relatively stronger sense of collective responsibility for policy outcomes. The book presents original research that explores issues central to the way the Senate functions and to its influence on the American political system. Senate Elections will be of special interest to those who study congressional elections and American politics
