Schotten, Peter M.
Perspectives on Political Science, v19 n4 p197-202 Fall 1990
Examines present lack of judicial restraint by analyzing "Missouri v. Jenkins," a case upholding a court-ordered tax increase to fund school desegregation. Maintains that elected representatives placate interest groups and abdicate power in favor of the courts when political decisions are unpopular. Questions the implications for future democratic government. (NL)
