Editorial Reviews

Choice
Barnett has once again brought together much of the Ninth Amendment scholarship. This collection is a worthy heir to Volume 1.
— Akhil Reed Amar, Yale Law School
Booknews
A collection of seminal writings on the history and meaning of the Ninth Amendment, reflecting a diverse cross-section of scholarly opinion. From the Introduction by Randy E. Barnett: "I suggest that the failure to find a 'general right of freedom' in the Constitution is connected to a general inability to understand the Ninth Amendment's declaration that 'the enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.'" Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Chalcedon Report
This book is valuable, not only for its historical content, but as a legal guide.
— Alex Kozinski, U.S. Court of Appeals
Southern Economic Journal
A treasure for historians, legal scholars, philosophers, and concerned citizens.
— Alex Kozinski, U.S. Court of Appeals
