Expertly compiled and deftly edited by Keith J. Bybee (Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science and the Michael O. Sawyer Chair of Constitutional Law and Politics at Syracuse university's Maxwell School of citizenship and Public Affairs), "Bench Press: The Collision Of Courts, Politics, And The Media" is a collection of nine informed and informative essays ranging from Charles Gardner Geyh's 'Preserving Public Confidence in the Courts in an Age of Individual Rights and Public Skepticism'; to Joanne F. Alper's 'Selecting the Judiciary: Who Should Be the Judge?'; to Dahlia's Litwick's 'The Internet and the Judiciary: We Are All Experts Now'. Articulate, erudite, focused, thoughtful and thought-provoking, each of the nine essays is expertly written and together form a fascinating body of keen observation and scholarly commentary that make "Bench Press" an important, timely, and strongly recommended addition to academic and community library Judicial Studies and Journalism Studies reference collections, as well as the supplemental reading lists for law school and journalism school students..
