"Well-written and cohesive....Editors Conti-Brown and Skeel did a fine job ensuring that a diversity of perspectives were represented, both disciplinary (economists, political scientists, lawyers) and professional/political (academics, a union lawyer, a conservative think tank scholar....Recommended."
