In recent years, the Supreme Court appears to have taken a greater interest in "business" issues. Does this reflect a change in the Court's orientation, or is it the natural outcome of the appellate process? Is the Court "pro-business"? If so, in what ways do the Court's decisions support business interests and what does that mean for the law and the American public? Business and the Roberts Court provides the first critical analysis of the Court's business-related jurisprudence. In this volume, prominent academics examine the Roberts Court's handling of business-related cases, through a series of empirical and doctrinal analyses. Issues covered include securities law, antitrust, labor law, preemption, and environmental law, among others. Business law and regulatory cases touch on many important legal doctrines and can have far-reaching effects. Understanding the bases upon which the Supreme Court decides business-related cases is of tremendous importance to practitioners and academics. It can also further greater understanding of one of the nation's most important government institutions. These issues are of interest to academics, but also of practical importance to Supreme Court and business practitioners.

American political parties are dying out, says the author, as powerful interest groups utilize their vast grassroots networks and financial resources to perform more and more of the parties' traditional functions. If companies and business associations are to compete effectively in this new environment, they will have to rethink their lobbying, political, and public outreach strategies. Mack says business organizations can no longer rely just on financing political campaigns and candidates. They must get more involved in grassroots political campaigns, and engage in innovative issues advocacy including long-term business and economic issues.
