Nicholas N. KittriePhilosophy of the United States is a most timely call for the reassessment and streamlining of the workings of America's system of justice, which has been increasingly questioned and maligned in recent times. As former counsel to the United States Senate Judiciary Committee, a constitutional and criminal lawyer, and an advisor to the Haitian, Philippine, South African and several other constitutional drafters, I have found few concise analyses and explications of this country's legal and constitutional machinery to share with those seeking to draw inspiration from the United States experience. Anderson's book clearly presents and outlines the fundamental questions that must be addressed by any constitutional democracy in the twenty-first century. If democracy is not only to survive but is to flourish it is incumbent upon citizens of all nations to understand the issues which Anderson articulates and advances so very well.
