Studies of social policy framed by analysis of judicial decisions include Judith A.
Baer, The Chains of Protection: The Judicial Response to Women's Labor Legislation
(Westport: Greenwood Press, 1978); and Donald L. Horowitz, The Courts and Social
Policy (Washington, D.C.: Brookings Institution, 1977). Among many discussions of the
desirability of a judicial role in policymaking, two authors may serve to introduce the
complex theoretical and value-laden issues of democracy and control involved: Ronald
Dworkin, Law's Empire (London: Fontana, 1986), and Taking Rights Seriously (London:
Duckworth, 1978); and Theodore J. Lowi, The End of Liberalism: Ideology, Policy, and
the Crisis of Public Authority (New York: Norton, 1969).
