Bush V. Gore: The Question of Legitimacy

by

Bush V. Gore: The Question of Legitimacy Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Supreme Court's intervention in the 2000 election will shape American law and democracy long after George W. Bush has left the White House. This vitally important book brings together a broad range of preeminent legal scholars who address the larger questions raised by the Supreme Court's actions. Did the Court's decision violate the rule of law? Did it inaugurate an era of super-politicized jurisprudence? How should Bush v. Gore change the terms of debate over the next round of Supreme Court appointments?

The contributors — Bruce Ackerman, Jack Balkin, Guido Calabresi, Steven Calabresi, Owen Fiss, Charles Fried, Robert Post, Margaret Jane Radin, Jeffrey Rosen, Jed Rubenfeld, Cass Sunstein, Laurence Tribe, and Mark Tushnet — represent a broad political spectrum. Their reactions to the case are varied and surprising, filled with sparkling argument and spirited debate. This is a must-read book for thoughtful Americans everywhere.

Review:

"A stunning collection of real-world legal rustications...assembled with a niftily guiding hand....No chilly legal-think here, but impassioned and piquing interpretations of law and its application or misapplication in the presidential election of 2000." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"[A] distinguished array of current and former law professors representing many different ideological stances....This deft examination of the various legal and political implications of Bush v. Gore will attract readers in academic and law libraries." Library Journal

Review:

"The ideologically diverse commentators brought together by Bruce Ackerman to analyze Bush v. Gore offer a wealth of arresting and deeply-informed observations about an unprecedented case that will be passionately argued about for as long as the United States Supreme Court exists. In the library of commentary generated by the Supreme Court?s decision, Bush v. Gore: The Question of Legitimacy is absolutely essential reading." Randall Kennedy, Harvard University
