From the Publisher:
In a witty and trenchant essay, Justice Scalia urges judges to resist the temptation to use legislative intention and legislative history, admonishing them instead to focus on the text of the case itself. Includes responses by Gordon Wood, Laurence Tribe, Ronald Dworkin, and Mary Ann Glendon.
An examination of contemporary issues in jurisprudence and legislation, by one of the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court. Scalia takes sharp issue with many of the prevailing legal theories of our day and holds to a strict principle of "originalism," according to which modern court judgements should avail themselves not only of a law's wording and apparent intent, but of the founders' original purpose in drafting it.


Wall Street Journal
"...we are lucky to have, in book form, an essay on legal interpretation by Justice Scalia, as well as a critical review of his entire judicial corpus." - John O. McGinnis 02/04/1997

New Republic
"As this little book makes clear, Scalia deserves respect for having redefined the mainstream of constitutional discourse, and in a substantially useful way." - Jeffrey Rosen 05/05/1997
