Book Review – The New York Times, May 12, 2013, by Jeffrey Rosen

Jeff Rosen writes that the story of the Federalist Society offers some lessons to readers: “First, the various strands of legal liberalism—civil libertarians, Great Society liberals, neoprogressive technocrats, economic populists and advocates of equal rights on the basis of race, gender and sexual orientation—would do well to set aside their ideological differences and converge around a common approach to constitutional interpretation that citizens can understand . . .and second, if liberals want to take the courts back from conservatives, they have to recognize that ideas—and judicial appointments—matter.”  Read the New York Times Book Review.
