Religious liberty in the Supreme Court : the cases that define the debate over church and state( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The simple language in which the First Amendment forbids Congress to make laws that "establish" religion or prohibit its free exercise has been anything but simple to apply. Since 1940, the Supreme Court has been called upon to decide many cases involving the religion clause - in such matters as prayer in public schools, unemployment compensation for persons whose religious scruples led to their unemployment, state aid to church-related schools, the display of Nativity scenes on city land, and tax exemption for property owned by religious organizations. Twenty-five of these cases are brought together here, introduced, excerpted, and annotated by Terry Eastland. With fifteen of the cases there is also a sampling of contemporaneous editorial comment, from such sources as the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Christian Century, and The New Republic. In Part Two, three legal scholars - Mary Ann Glendon, Michael J. Sandel, and Michael W. McConnell - comment on trends in the Court's religion-clause jurisprudence and their implications for our public life
Ending affirmative action : the case for colorblind justice by Terry Eastland( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 1,007 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this essential book, Terry Eastland makes a compelling case that we must end affirmative action if we are to restore true fairness and justice in America. Racial preferences and setasides have distorted what our country stands for, and we must return to the only standard that is in accord with our national ideals - the standard of color-blindness. Justice was ill served when whites were preferred, and it is no more equitable when minorities are. Eastland lays bare the absurdities of affirmative action, especially the preferencess for immigrants, whose ancestors could not possibly have suffered discrimination at the hands of white Americans. Eastland also documents how Republicans and Democrats alike have been less than honest about affirmative action, from the cynicism behind Richard Nixon's "Philadelphia Plan" in 1969 to the Clinton administration's ideological pirouettes today

Energy in the executive : the case for the strong presidency by Terry Eastland( Book )

6 editions published between 1992 and 1994 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Every four years the race for the presidency absorbs the nation's attention. But what does it take for a President to actually govern - especially to govern well? Terry Eastland, the noted political writer who studied the presidency up close during his service in President Reagan's administration, challenges the widely held view of the presidency as an office where canny personal skills take precedence over the knowledgeable and proper use of constitutional power. In this deeply informed, unconventional, and persuasive interpretation of the nation's highest office, Eastland makes a timely case for the strong presidency, not one based on charisma or the "bully pulpit," but instead on the proper exercise of the constitutional expectations of the office, thus recovering and restating for our time the wisdom of the American founders - that "energy in the executive" is essential to good government. Eastland examines the presidency in its work with Congress, through the executive brand, and in the courts. Analyzing a wide variety of governing episodes from the Reagan and Bush years - tax reform, Iran-Contra, civil rights, Saddam Hussein, the infamous Bush "budget summit," the Supreme Court nominations of Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas - Eastland shows just what a strong presidency is, and what it is not. Focusing on the selective use of presidential rhetoric in seeking legislation, the responsibility a President has for pressing policies into the day-to-day administration of the government, and the jurisprudential legacy a President can build through well-considered judicial appointments, Eastland maintains that the strong presidency is possible only when the tools of governance are properly understood and energetically used. Eastland points the way for a new generation of politicians and government officials, arguing that the key to effective government - conservative or liberal - is understanding and carrying out the executive role in accordance with its constitutional design. Energy in the Executive is that rare political book which offers fresh insights into the much-discussed subject of governing - which is, after all, what Presidents are elected to do
