Rate this:
This original work is an unusual effort to relate modern constitutional politics to the moral character of American culture. Writing in non-technical language, Nagel demonstrates how judicial decisions embody wider social tendencies toward moral evasiveness, privatization, and opportunism.

The discussion ranges over such controversial topics as political correctness on the campus and in the case law, resistance to constitutional rights like abort.
