Summary
"This work will become thedefining text on progressive constitutionalism -- a parallel to Thomas Picketty's contribution but for all who care deeply about constitutional law. Beautifully written and powerfully argued, this is a masterpiece." --Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School, and author ofFree Culture Worried about what a super conservative majority on the Supreme Court means for the future of civil liberties? From gun control to reproductive health, a conservative court will reshape the lives of all Americans for decades to come. The time to develop and defend a progressive vision of the U.S. Constitution that protects the rights of all people is now. University of California Berkeley Dean and respected legal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky expertly exposes how conservatives are using the Constitution to advance their own agenda that favors business over consumers and employees, and government power over individual rights. But exposure is not enough. Progressives have spent too much of the last forty-five years trying to preserve the legacy of the Warren Court's most important rulings and reacting to the Republican-dominated Supreme Courts by criticizing their erosion of rights--but have not yet developed a progressive vision for the Constitution itself. Yet, if we just look to the promise of the Preamble--liberty and justice for all--and take seriously its vision, a progressive reading of the Constitutioncan lead us forward as we continue our fight ensuring democratic rule, effective government, justice, liberty, and equality. Includes the CompleteConstitutionand Amendments of the United States of America
