Overruling Democracy: The Supreme Court Vs. the American People Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Supreme Court has recently issued decisions announcing that citizens have neither a constitutional right to vote, nor the right to an education. Conservative judges have continually disavowed claims to any rights not specifically mentioned in the Constitution. In "Overruling Democracy", celebrated law professor Jamin B. Raskin, argues that we need to develop a whole new set of rights, through amendments or court decisions, that revitalize and protect the democracy of everyday life. Detailing specific cases through interesting narratives, "Overruling Democracy" describes the transgressions of the Supreme Court against the Constitution and the people - and the faulty reasoning behind them - and lays out the plan for the best way to back a more democratic system.

Synopsis:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [243]-278) and index.
