A community built on words : the constitution in history and politics by Jefferson Powell( Book )

"H. Jefferson Powell offers a new approach to one of the central issues in American constitutional thinking today: the many ways in which constitutional arguments and outcomes are shaped both by historical circumstances and by political goals - including those of judges... Powell analyzes a series of constitutional controversies from 1790 to 1944 to demonstrate that constitutional law from its very beginning has involved politically charged and ideologically divisive arguments. Powell then takes his conclusions one step further, claiming that it is precisely this historical tradition of argument that has given American constitutional law a remarkable coherence and integrity over time." -- BOOK JACKET

Constitutional conscience : the moral dimension of judicial decision by Jefferson Powell( Book )

17 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 369 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While many recent observers have accused American judges - especially Supreme Court justices - of being too driven by politics and ideology, others have argued that judges are justified in using their positions to advance personal views. Advocating a different approach - one that eschews ideology but still values personal perspective - H. Jefferson Powell makes a case for the centrality of individual conscience in constitutional decision making."--BOOK JACKET

Targeting Americans : the constitutionality of the U.S. drone war by Jefferson Powell( Book )

10 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This book] focuses on the legal debate surrounding drone strikes, the use of which has expanded significantly under the Obama Presidency as part of the continuing war against terror. Despite the political salience of the legal questions raised by targeted killing, the author asserts that there has been remarkably little careful analysis of the fundamental legal question: the constitutionality of the policy. From a position of deep practical expertise in constitutional issues, Prof. Powell provides a dispassionate and balanced analysis of the issues posed by U.S. targeted killing policy, using the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki in September 2011 as a focus for discussion. While Powell concludes that the al-Awlaki strike was constitutional under 2001 legislation, he rejects the Obama administration's broader claims of authority for its drone policies. Furthermore, he argues, citizens acting as combatants in al-Qaeda and associated groups are not entitled to due process protections: by due process standards, the administration's procedures are legally inadequate. A fundamental theme of the book is that the conclusion that an action or policy is constitutional should not be confused with claims about its wisdom, morality, or legality under international norms. Part of the purpose of constitutional analysis is to draw attention to these other normative concerns and not, as is too often the case, to occlude them."--Jacket

The right to self-government after Bush v. Gore by Paul D Carrington( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Critics and defenders of the Supreme Court alike have supposed that in Bush v. Gore the Justices were motivated by conventional political instincts, selecting a President whose political ideology was closer to their own and repaying political debts to those who had conferred so much honor and power on them by appointing them to the Court. While the authors of this paper do not share that suspicion, they also do not credit the Justices with having made an earnest effort to conform their decision to the Constitution of the United States. Their keenest disappointment is with the performance of Justice Antonin Scalia, who has so long and ardently presented himself as an advocate of the self-restraint required by judges participating in a republican form of government. The authors first review Justice Scalia's utterances of principles with many of which they are in agreement. They then measure his performance in Bush v. Gore against the standards he has proclaimed for himself
