Lee Kovarsky (University of Maryland, Francis King Carey School of Law) has posted Habeas Verite (Tulsa Law Review, Vol. 47, No. 1, 2011, p. 13) on SSRN. Here is the abstract:
books from varied academic disciplines demonstrate that habeas is as much about
power as it is about liberty - the power of some judges over other magistrates,
the power of the judiciary over coordinating governing institutions, and the
power of dominant political coalitions over the opposition.
