In a revised and substantially improved edition of his classic 1985 book, The Federal Courts: Crisis and Reform, Posner, chief judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, provides an insightful and distinctive examination of the problems and challenges that have arisen from the unprecedented growth in caseload in federal courts… [His] thoughtful analysis is highly recommended.Library Journal

[T]he book provides a comprehensive evaluation of the federal judiciary. While Posner raises serious concerns about the burgeoning caseload in federal appellate courts, he also carefully distinguishes the caseload from the workload… Posner’s thought-provoking proposals are worth consideration. Anyone concerned with the judicial administration of appellate courts should read this book.—Mary Massaron Ross, State Bar of Michigan Appellate Practice Section Newsletter
