Editorial Reviews

"For much too long, progressive thinkers have been either responding reflexively to agendas set by the right, or wringing their hands over the absence of constructive options of their own. This volume marks the end of that time in the wilderness. Constitutional progressives who read thisbook's veritable cornucopia of carefully conceived alternatives are bound to be energizes by the vistas opened here--and challenged by the puzzles poster in every sparkling chapter." --Laurence H. Tribe, University Professor, Harvard Law School, and author of The Invisible Constitution
