    schema:reviewBody ""The lawyers and legal commentators who contribute to We Dissent unanimously agree that during Chief Justice William Rehnquists nineteen-year tenure, the Supreme Court failed to adequately protect civil liberties and civil rights. This is evident in majority opinions written for numerous cases heard by the Rehnquist Court, and eight of those cases are re-examined here, with contributors offering dissents to the Courts decisions. The Supreme Court opinions criticized in We Dissent suggest that the Rehnquist Court placed the interests of government above the people, and as the dissents in this book demonstrate, the Court strayed far from our constitutional ideals when it abandoned its commitment to the protection of the individual rights of Americans." "Taken together, the dissents in this unique book address the pressing issue of Constitutional protection of individual freedom, and present a vision of constitutional law in the United States that differs considerably from the recent jurisprudence of the United States Supreme Court. This vision takes seriously a commitment to democratic values, social justice and racial equality and insists upon governmental accountability to our citizens and others protected by the Constitution."--Jacket." ;
