Description - The Longest Night by Arthur J. Jacobson

The American presidential election of 2000 raised fundamental questions not only about American democracy, but also about the nation's constitution and about the legitimate role of American courts, state and federal, and in particular about the United States Supreme Court. This text presents a reaction to the legal aftermath of the election by experts on the subject. With a balance of opposing views - including those of some of the most distinguished foreign commentators writing on the subject - the contributors present a breadth of perspectives in addressing the judicial, institutional, and political questions involved in the disputed election. "The Longest Night" contains a thorough chronology of the events in Florida, a detailed account of the institutional structure of American presidential elections, a series of analyses both criticizing and defending the decisions in Bush v. Gore, American perspectives on the Florida struggle and America's electoral system, and a debate on maintaining or reforming the electoral college.
