Judicialization, juridification, legalization – whatever terms they use, scholars, commentators, and citizens are fascinated by what one book has called “The Global Rise of Judicial Power” and seek to understand its implications for politics and society. In How Policy Shapes Politics, Jeb E. Barnes and Thomas F. Burke find that the turn to courts, litigation, and legal rights can have powerful political consequences.
