Volume 3, Publisher description: The Civil Rights Revolution carries Bruce Ackerman's sweeping reinterpretation of constitutional history into the era beginning with Brown v. Board of Education. From Rosa Parks's courageous defiance, to Martin Luther King's resounding cadences in "I Have a Dream," to Lyndon Johnson's leadership of Congress, to the Supreme Court's decisions redefining the meaning of equality, the movement to end racial discrimination decisively changed our understanding of the Constitution. Ackerman anchors his discussion in the landmark statutes of the 1960s: the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968. Challenging conventional legal analysis and arguing instead that constitutional politics won the day, he describes the complex interactions among branches of government--and also between government and the ordinary people who participated in the struggle. He showcases leaders such as Everett Dirksen, Hubert Humphrey, and Richard Nixon who insisted on real change, not just formal equality, for blacks and other minorities. The Civil Rights Revolution transformed the Constitution, but not through judicial activism or Article V amendments. The breakthrough was the passage of laws that ended the institutionalized humiliations of Jim Crow and ensured equal rights at work, in schools, and in the voting booth. This legislation gained congressional approval only because of the mobilized support of the American people--and their principles deserve a central place in the nation's history. Ackerman's arguments are especially important at a time when the Roberts Court is actively undermining major achievements of America' Second Reconstruction.
Rejecting arguments of judicial activists, proceduralists, and neoconservatives, Ackerman's new model of judicial interpretation synthesizes the constitutional contributions of many generations into a coherent whole.

After piecing her life back together Stevie has to decide if the business she's started is going to cost her more loss.
Author: James F. Gauss
After piecing her life back together Stevie has to decide if the business she's started is going to cost her more loss. Her right hand man, Alec Corbeit is her greatest supporter when all goes wrong. Would knowing of his years of planning to find a place in her life change that? He was standing above them, waiting for his wife and her hired hand to wake. What would she say? Those eyes would say it all, that much Alec knew. Wounded, afraid and finally angry she would curse him and take back every gesture of love she'd ever given him. And then Stevie would shove him aside, wanting only to walk back into the arms of her powerful husband. Alec jerked awake from the dream still able to see the faces of the happy couple- mocking him. This was no robbery interrupted. His nemesis had been combat trained and quick. As he searched her home his own ghosts drove him further into a private hell. The widow had lost none of her beautiful possessions so did that mean they were looking for signs of him? And how much danger was she in if they were? She did not hear him come up behind her and settle himself a short distance away. Gently his presence invaded her senses. Stevie realized she truly did not fear him. She let this sink in before raising her eyes to meet Alecs'. "I have a bit more to tell you," he said softly. "I've held on to this secret for so long, pushing away my guilt as each time we've held each other I've loved you more "

"This work will become the defining 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 of Free 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 Constitution can lead us forward as we continue our fight ensuring democratic rule, effective government, justice, liberty, and equality.

Several of the most divisive moral conflicts that have beset Americans in the period since World War II have been transmuted into constitutional conflicts and resolved as such. In his new book, eminent legal scholar Michael Perry evaluates the grave charge that the modern Supreme Court has engineered a "judicial usurpation of politics." In particular, Perry inquires which of several major Fourteenth Amendment conflicts--over race segregation, race-based affirmative action, sex-based discrimination, homosexuality, abortion, and physician-assisted suicide--have been resolved as they should have been. He lays the necessary groundwork for his inquiry by addressing questions of both constitutional theory and constitutional history. A clear-eyed examination of some of the perennial controversies in American life, We the People is a major contribution to modern constitutional studies.
