Overview


One of the nation’s leading authorities on constitutional law shows how the Supreme Court’s dramatic shift to the right on the most important legal issues of our time reflects a rigid Republican ideological agenda that is profoundly altering our freedoms and our country.

• Expert analysis: Drawing largely on cases he has argued, Erwin Chemerinsky describes how rigid ideology has trumped reason in cases ranging from “three strikes laws” to laws limiting the ability of citizens to bring suit for damages and infringements on their liberties. He explains how the political right wing has been steadily eroding the constitutional barriers between church and state, fostering separate but unequal public schools, limiting civil liberties and affirmative action programs. Although many Americans are aware of this rightward shift on the Supreme Court, Chemerinsky shows how these changes have victimized ordinary citizens.

• Timely subject will attract attention: With publication at the start of a new term for the Court and with a new justice joining it, The Conservative Assault on the Constitution will draw much attention, especially from political commentators. As a constitutional scholar, author of a leading textbook on constitutional law, and a frequent commentator on legal issues, Chemerinsky is certain to be in demand to comment on the Court’s agenda for the coming term, in addition to the long-term trends that he discusses in his book.

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 5-7- Reluctantly agreeing to go to Camp Runamucka once she discovers that her friend Carly will also be there, Amelia is surprised to find that it is so much fun. Swimming, archery, hiking, and singing around the campfire are enjoyable pastimes, but the most fun of all is being selected as a cartoonist for the camp newspaper. Amelia is also pleasantly surprised to find that a second cartoonist is not only cute, but he also seems to like her. However, she soon learns that Carly has a crush on Luke, too, and the tension mounts as the two friends try to work out their problem. The angst and arguments over the boy lean toward the repetitious, but preteen girls will be interested in the resolution. Colorful illustrations add to the book's appeal. This is another entertaining "notebook" from a seasoned writer.-Maryann H. Owen, Racine Public Library, WI
