RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 61724352 LA English T1 Antonin Scalia's jurisprudence : text and tradition A1 Rossum, Ralph A.,, PB University Press of Kansas PP Lawrence YR 2006 SN 0700614478 9780700614479 AB "Lionized by the right and demonized by the left, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is the high court's quintessential conservative. Witty, outspoken, often abrasive, he is widely regarded as the most controversial member of the Court.". "This book is the first comprehensive, reasoned, and sympathetic analysis of how Scalia has decided cases during his entire nineteen-year Supreme Court tenure. Ralph Rossum focuses on Scalia's more than 600 Supreme Court opinions and dissents - carefully wrought, passionately argued, and filled with well-turned phrases - which portray him as an eloquent defender of an "original meaning" jurisprudence. He also includes analyses of Scalia's Court of Appeals opinions for the D.C. Circuit, his major law review articles as a law professor and judge, and his provocative book, A Matter of Interpretation."--BOOK JACKET.
