Oxford University Press

This chapter considers the significant differences of opinion which exist within pluralism. The choice between these competing visions reflects important value judgements, and the preferred option has significant repercussions for the shape and content of constitutional review. Three visions are considered: the public-choice model, modified pluralism, and the process model. It also examines John Hart Ely’s theory of judicial review because of its connection with the pluralist model of democratic society.

Keywords:   public-choice model, modified pluralism, process model, John Hart Ely, interest representation, USA
