The law of democracy : legal structure of the political process by Samuel Issacharoff( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2016 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

[The author's] examine an array of specific issues currently posing challenges to the practice of democratic politics in the United States: issues involving the individual right to vote, partisan and racial gerrymandering, the relationship of the state to political parties, campaign-finance reform, and the fair representation of minorities in democratic bodies ... If nothing else, [their] aim is to open the minds of readers to other ways of conceiving democratic institutions than those that are reflected in current arrangements. The wealth of issues makes it unlikely that any one-semester course will cover the entire book.-Pref

A constitution for all times by Pamela S Karlan( Book )

9 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pamela S. Karlan is a unique figure in American law. A professor at Stanford Law School and former counsel for the NAACP, she has argued seven cases at the Supreme Court and worked on dozens more as a clerk for Justice Harry Blackmun. In her first book written for a general audience, she examines what happens in American courtrooms -- especially the Supreme Court -- and what it means for our everyday lives and to our national commitments to democracy, justice, and fairness. Through an exploration of current hot-button legal issues -- from voting rights to the death penalty, health care, same-sex marriage, invasive high-tech searches, and gun control -- Karlan makes a sophisticated and resonant case for her vision of the Constitution. At the heart of that vision is the conviction that the Constitution is an evolving document that enables government to solve novel problems and expand the sphere of human freedom. As skeptics charge congressional overreach on such issues as the Affordable Care Act and even voting rights, Karlan pushes back. On individual rights in particular, she believes the Constitution allows Congress to enforce the substance of its amendments. And she calls out the Roberts Court for its disdain for the other branches of government and for its alignment with a conservative agenda
