Scalia Dissents: Writings of the Supreme Court's Wittiest, Most Outspoken Justice Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Brilliant. Colorful. Visionary. Tenacious. Witty. Since his appointment to the Supreme Court in 1986, Associate Justice Antonin Scalia has been described as all of these things and for good reason. He is perhaps the best-known justice on the Supreme Court today and certainly the most controversial. Yet most Americans have probably not read even one of his several hundred Supreme Court opinions. In Scalia Dissents, Kevin Ring, former counsel to the U.S. Senate's Constitution Subcommittee, lets Justice Scalia speak for himself. This volume—the first of its kind— showcases the quotable justice's take on many of today's most contentious constitutional debates.

Scalia Dissents contains over a dozen of the justice's most compelling and controversial opinions. Ring also provides helpful background on the opinions and a primer on Justice Scalia's judicial philosophy.

Scalia Dissents is the perfect book for readers who love scintillating prose and penetrating insight on the most important constitutional issues of our time.

Book News Annotation:

Ring, former counsel to the US Senate's Constitution subcommittee, has gathered some of Scalia's most important opinions on some of the most controversial issues addressed by the Supreme Court: abortion, the death penalty, free speech, religion and homosexuality. He provides an overview of Scalia's philosophy and prefaces each of Scalia's opinions with the relevant text of the Constitution, its historical interpretation, previous decisions, the relevant facts of the case and the opinions of the Court and other Justices.
