  • At least since Robert Dahl's (1957) pathbreaking essay, Decision-Making in a Democracy: The Supreme Court as a National Policy-Maker," political scientists have invested tremendous energy in exploring linkages between the Supreme Court and its environment. This dissertation joins those efforts by offering studies of three such paths of influence °owing from the judiciary. In turn, I investigate the effects of Supreme Court decisions on public opinion, the role of judicial review in legislative decision-making, and the responsiveness of the media's agenda to Supreme Court decision-making. In all cases, the evidence suggests that the Supreme Court's influence extends beyond the legal world and into the larger political system.
