|Rejecting the views of both left and right, Mr. Levy evaluates the doctrine of original intent by examining the sources of constitutional law and landmark cases. Merciless and brilliant. In fascinating detail...Mr. Levy demonstrates that there can be no such animal [as original intent]. Anthony Lewis, New York Times Book Review.|
From the Publisher:
