Valerie Hoekstra examines public reaction to Supreme Court decisions in this study. Using data from survey research, she analyzes extensive media coverage, and sensitive knowledge about the cases, to reveal how people's opinions of the Supreme Court were affected by its decisions.

"Hoekstra's...research design is excellent. Her review of the relevant literature is insightful and intelligent. She uses an inter-disciplinary approach that demonstrates good understanding of the relevant social psychology, political psychology, and persuasion literature and she understands that substance and theory are as important as methodology." Law and Politics Book Review
