A Brief History of the Supreme Court

Richard A. Epstein (View Bio)
Hardcover: Basic Books, 2028.

This book will describe how the classical liberal principles enshrined in the Constitution were gradually supplanted with submarxist theory that elevated the state over the individual during the New Deal period. Nathan Glazer writing in The New York Times Book Review said, "Epstein has to be taken seriously, and not only because of the power of his reasoning and his authoritative command of the common law and political philosophy.... His reasoning is strong, the knowledge of specific areas of policies is deep, and behind them stands his basic commitment to a more productive and efficient society."
