"Draws heavily on two previous works. The first ... 'On reading the Constitution,' appeared in the Utah law review in 1988. It was a lightly edited version of the Tanner Lectures given by Laurence Tribe at the University of Utah in November 1986, and forms the basis for what became Chapters 1 and 2 of this book. Chapters 3 through 5 are based on 'Levels of generality in the definition of rights,' a recent collaboration by the two of us, which first appeared in the fall 1990 edition of the Chicago law review"--Acknowledgments, page [vii]

No litmus test : law versus politics in the twenty-first century by Michael C Dorf( Book )

5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Backed by academic critics who have been arguing against the possibility of objectivity for roughly a century, many critics on the left have essentially given up: Law, they contend, is simply politics in disguise. By analyzing the most pressing controversies of our day, Columbia University law professor Michael C. Dorf defends the possibility of principled legal decision making against the attacks of both the right and the left. From Bush V. Gore to the war in Iraq, No Litmus Test demonstrates that even when the law provides no clear-cut answers, it offers tools for distinguishing good arguments from bad ones."--Jacket
