The Supreme Court Opinions of Clarence Thomas, 1991-2006: A Conservative's Perspectiveby Henry Mark Holzer
In his more than fifteen years on the Supreme Court, Clarence Thomas has written nearly 350 opinions. Although Thomas's words are available for Americans to examine, much of the public still bases its opinion of Thomas on the words of the American media. Uncritical acceptance of glib assumptions has greatly distorted the record and even the character of this formidable justice.
This book offers the opportunity to consider the real Clarence Thomas - the intellectual defender of the Constitution. It analyzes his most important majority, concurring, and dissenting opinions from 1991 through 2006. The author argues that Thomas's opinions reveal a consistent adherence to the principles of federalism, separation of powers, limited judicial review, and regard for individual rights as contemplated by the framers of the Constitution. An appendix lists every opinion Thomas has written.
