Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you haven't read The Next 25 Years, you may awaken one morning and ask, 'What happened to America?' This is a clarion cry for every American to act before our constitutional way of life is all but a distant memory.--Nadine Strossen, president of the American Civil Liberties Union

Martin Garbus's grasp of the importance of what is now happening to one of the greatest legal institutions in the world--the Supreme Court--is brilliantly demonstrated in this analysis. Martin is recognized internationally as one of the great legal constitutional voices of the US. He knows from raw experience why an independent Supreme Court is a crucial check on the Executive and is fundamental to liberty.--Lady Helena Kennedy, member of the House of Lords in the British Parliament and author of Just Law: The Changing Face of Justice and Why it Matters

In The Next 25 Years, renowned First Amendment lawyer Martin Garbus examines what will be the impact of the new Supreme Court on the future of our republic.

Drawing on extensive knowledge of Constitutional law and legal procedure, Garbus, one of our most astute legal historians, defrocks the executive branch's grip over the judiciary as an extension of its own executive powers. He warns of the threat of an incoming textualist bench that wishes to roll back more than a century's worth of hard-won reforms. And he offers the first clear-eyed account of how the coming bench may imperil our way of life and endanger the liberties you may have thought were our inalienable rights.

Named by TIME magazine as legendary . . . one of the best trial lawyers in the country, Martin Garbus has appeared before the US Supreme Court and the highest courts throughout the nation. Newsweek, the National Law Journal, and others cite Garbus as America's most prominent First Amendment lawyer.
