Before Rosa Parks could ignite a Montgomery Bus Boycott, the Supreme Court had to strike down the Alabama law which made segregated bus service required by law; before Martin Luther King could march on Selma to register voters, the Supreme Court had to find unconstitutional the Southern Democratic Party's exclusion of African-Americans; and before the March on Washington and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Supreme Court had to strike down the laws allowing for the segregation of public graduate schools, colleges, high schools, and grade schools. Making Civil Rights Law provides a chronological narrative history of the legal struggle, led by Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, that preceded the political battles for civil rights. Drawing on interviews with Thurgood Marshall and other NAACP lawyers, as well as new information about the private deliberations of the Supreme Court, Tushnet tells the dramatic story of how the NAACP Legal Defense Fund led the Court to use the Constitution as an instrument of liberty and justice for all African-Americans.; He also offers new insights into how the justices argued among themselves about the historic changes they were to make in American society. Making Civil Rights Law provides an overall picture of the forces involved in civil rights litigation, bringing clarity to the legal reasoning that animated this "Constitutional revolution", and showing how the slow development of doctrine and precedent reflected the overall legal strategy of Thurgood Marshall and the NAACP+-+376935046516786ocn086090593book20070.29Tushnet, Mark VOut of range : why the Constitution can't end the battle over gunsIn this volume the authopr, a legal scholar offers a study of the debate over the Second Amendment that looks at the continuing battle over gun control, with an analysis of different elements of the Second Amendment and constitutional arguments over them. Few constitutional disputes maintain as powerful a grip on the public mind as the battle over the Second Amendment. The National Rifle Association and gun control groups struggle unceasingly over a piece of the political landscape that no candidate for the presidency, and few for Congress, can afford to ignore. But who is right? Will it ever be possible to settle the argument? The author brings to this book a deep expertise in the Constitution, the Supreme Court, and the role of the law in American life. He breaks down the different positions on the Second Amendment, showing that it is a mistake to stereotype them. He finds the constitutional arguments finely balanced, which is one reason the debate has raged for so long. Along the way, he examines various experiments in public policy, from both sides, and finds little clear evidence for the practical effectiveness of any approach to gun safety and prosecution. Of course, he notes, most advocates of the right to keep and bear arms agree that it should be subject to reasonable regulation. Ultimately, he argues, our view of the Second Amendment reflects our sense of ourselves as a people. The answer to the debate will not be found in any holy writ, but in our values and our vision of the nation. This examination offers a guide to both sides of the argument, pointing the way to solutions that could calm, if not settle, this bitter dispute+-+6979580465163911ocn034906157book19970.53Tushnet, Mark VMaking constitutional law : Thurgood Marshall and the Supreme Court, 1961-1991HistoryBiographyThis book, the first to fully utilize the papers of Justices Marshall and William J. Brennan, describes Marshall's approach to constitutional law in areas ranging from civil rights and the death penalty to abortion and affirmative action. Tushnet, who served as a law clerk for Marshall in the early 197Os, gives ample attention to the Court's operations during Marshall's tenure, the relations among the judges, and the particular roles played by Chief Justice Warren Burger, Justice Brennan, and Justice Antonin Scalia+-+8968450465158115ocn014379030book19000.53Tushnet, Mark VThe NAACP's legal strategy against segregated education, 1925-1950History"The NAACP's fight against segregated education - the first public interest litigation campaign - culminated in the 1954 Brown decision. While touching on the general social, political, and economic climate in which the NAACP acted, Mark V. Tushnet emphasizes the internal workings of the organization as revealed in its own documents. He argues that the dedication and political and legal skills of staff members such as Walter White, Charles Hamilton Houston, and Thurgood Marshall were responsible for the ultimate success of public interest law. This edition contains a new epilogue by the author that addresses general questions of litigation strategy, the contested question of whether the Brown decision mattered, and the legacy of Brown through the Burger and Rehnquist courts."--Résumé de l'éditeur+-+5826932535143518ocn437034945file20030.53Tushnet, Mark VThe new constitutional orderIn his 1996 State of the Union Address, President Bill Clinton announced that the "age of big government is over." Some Republicans accused him of cynically appropriating their themes, while many Democrats thought he was betraying the principles of the New Deal and the Great Society. Mark Tushnet argues that Clinton was stating an observed fact: the emergence of a new constitutional order in which the aspiration to achieve justice directly through law has been substantially chastened.Tushnet argues that the constitutional arrangements that prevailed in the United States from the 1930+-+900073559632412279ocn055665434book20050.28Tushnet, Mark VA Court divided : the Rehnquist court and the future of constitutional law"The dramas of the Court - both intellectual and personal - have turned on and determined the most important cases of our time: gay rights, abortion, affirmative action, crime, hate speech, advertising, and big business. They have resulted in the undoing of legislation that characterized the New Deal and had seemed unassailable for a half-century. Here, Mark Tushnet both provides a clear and accessible history of the nation's last half-century under the rule of law and shows why the next half-century and more depends on the next Court appointments."--BOOK JACKET+-+431305848511457ocn045841509book20010.29Marshall, ThurgoodThurgood Marshall : his speeches, writings, arguments, opinions, and reminiscencesBiographySourcesProfiles the life and works of Thurgood Marshall, with his speeches, writings, arguments, opinions and reminiscences+-+303870100694521ocn039262005book19990.56Tushnet, Mark VTaking the Constitution away from the courtsAnnotation+-+806955641588914ocn007197092book19810.66Tushnet, Mark VThe American law of slavery, 1810-1860 : considerations of humanity and interestHistory84211ocn311040358file20090.53Global perspectives on constitutional lawAn ideal supplement for professors who wish to incorporate comparative law into their constitutional law courses, Global Perspectives on Constitutional Law introduces students to the various ways that nations other than the United States resolve contemporary constitutional questions.

Now, for the first time, one of the most distinguished Supreme Court scholars has gathered famous dissents as he considers a provocative question: how might our history appear now if these cases in the highest court in the country had turned out differently? The surprising answer Tushnet offers: not all that different. Tushnet introduces and explains sixteen influential cases from throughout the Court's history, putting them into political context and offering a sense of what could have developed if the dissents were instead the majority opinions. Ultimately, Tushnet demonstrates that the words of Supreme Court justices are only one piece of a larger puzzle that defines what the Constitution means to us. We should not value their opinions over other pieces, such as social movements, politics, economics, and more. Written in accessible and lively language, edited with a lay readership in mind, I Dissent offers an invaluable collection for anyone interested in American history and how we define constitutional rights. By placing the Supreme Court back into the framework of the government rather than viewing it as a near-sacred body issuing final decisions that cannot be questioned, Tushnet provides a radically fresh view of the judiciary and a new approach to reading the overlooked writings of major contentious figures from throughout American history+-+61855525356978ocn016405119book19860.70Tushnet, Mark VRed, white, and blue : a critical analysis of constitutional lawHistory66615ocn080460670book20070.63Tushnet, Mark VWeak courts, strong rights : judicial review and social welfare rights in comparative constitutional lawUnlike many other countries, the United States has few constitutional guarantees of social welfare rights such as income, housing, or healthcare. In part this is because many Americans believe that the courts cannot possibly enforce such guarantees. However, recent innovations in constitutional design in other countries suggest that such rights can be judicially enforced--not by increasing the power of the courts but by decreasing it. In Weak Courts, Strong Rights, Mark Tushnet uses a comparative legal perspective to show how creating weaker forms of judicial review may actually allow for stro+-+77458664156349ocn449854144book20100.56Tushnet, Mark VWhy the Constitution mattersHow the Constitution matters -- How the Supreme Court matters -- How to make the Constitution matter more-or differently+-+418506558555410ocn225443309book20080.63Tushnet, Mark VThe Constitution of the United States of America : a contextual analysisThis book provides a critical introduction to the history and current meaning of the United States' Constitution. It is organised around two themes: Firstly, the U.S. Constitution is old, short, and difficult to amend. These characteristics have made constitutional 'interpretation', especially by the U.S. Supreme Court, the primary mechanism for adapting the Constitution to ever-changing reality. Secondly, the Constitution creates a structure of political opportunities that allows political actors, including political parties, to pursue the preferred policy goals even to the point of altering the very structure of politics. Politics, that is, often gives meaning to the Constitution. Deploying these themes to examine the structure of the national government, federalism, judicial review, and individual rights, the book provides basic information about, and deeper insights into, the way the U.S. constitutional system has developed and what it means today+-+83828669365472ocn033665302book19960.33Tushnet, Mark VAbortion+-+285075163550812ocn051315805book20030.70The Oxford handbook of legal studiesThis volume provides a comprehensive overview of law and legal scholarship at the dawn of the 21st century.
