Advice And Consent

RRP $17.95

From Louis Brandeis to Robert Bork to Clarence Thomas, the nomination of federal judges has generated intense political conflict. With the coming retirement of one or more Supreme Court Justices--and threats to filibuster lower court judges--the selection process is likely to be, once again, the center of red-hot partisan debate.
In Advice and Consent, two leading legal scholars, Lee Epstein and Jeffrey A. Segal, offer a brief, illuminating Baedeker to this highly important procedure, discussing everything from constitutional background, to crucial differences in the nomination of judges and justices, to the role of the Judiciary Committee in vetting nominees. Epstein and Segal shed light on the role played by the media, by the American Bar Association, and by special interest groups (whose efforts helped defeat Judge Bork). Though it is often assumed that political clashes over nominees are a new phenomenon, the authors argue that the appointment of justices and judges has always been a highly contentious process--one largely driven by ideological and partisan concerns. The reader discovers 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 possible "reforms," from the so-called nuclear option, whereby a majority of the Senate could vote to prohibit filibusters, to the even more dramatic suggestion that Congress eliminate a judge's life tenure either by term limits or compulsory retirement.
With key appointments looming on the horizon, Advice and Consent provides everything concerned citizens need to know to understand the partisan rows that surround the judicial nominating process.


Achieving A Meaningful Retirement

RRP $0.00

As the baby boomers approach retirement, many are searching for ideas that will assist them in preparing for the rest of their lives. Should they wait until retirement is upon them, or should they begin preparing today? Remembering that you may live well into your 80's and 90's, you want to be prepared to follow a course that you yourself chart. It seems the only sensible thing to do. If you are a working adult, there are aspects of your retirement that you should be planning for now. How will you be able to pay for your needs and wants during the final 1/3 of your life? It would also be prudent to nurture a healthy body and mind. Being knowledgeable about healthy eating habits and practicing them is certainly a good place to start. Are you making exercise and fitness a lifelong priority? The earlier that you begin to eat well and exercise, the greater will be the expectation of a longer and more fulfilling retirement. Your pre-retirement years are usually goal-oriented. Your career requires you to meet goals that are set for you or by you. You also take on a variety of challenges. It is by meeting or excelling in your goals and challenges that you are motivated to move forward. You flourish when you feel a sense of achievement. In retirement, you will also have the need for personal goals and challenges. Having the freedom to choose them, along with the element of flexibility to achieve them, will be especially rewarding. Your transition into retirement will impact you socially and emotionally as well. You will have many choices to make. Some of those choices will be for a time when you are active and healthy. Others will ensure that your final days are dealt with in a manner of your choosing.
