Abstract

Three recent 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.

Keywords: habeas corpus
