Summary
  • What is the legacy of the most controversial Supreme Court decision of our time? Now that the conflagration that followed Bush v. Gore has died down, Ronald Dworkin has assembled an extraordinary group of America's leading legal and political thinkers to sift through the embers. Re-examining the historical, political, and ethical dimensions of the Court's decision, and revisiting arguments made in the heat of the moment, some of the country's most influential constitutional scholars and historians -- liberals and conservatives alike -- assess the sources of Bush v. Gore and the future of the Court and American democracy. They have produced what is undoubtedly the most thorough and intellectually searching examination of the 2000 election
  • A Badly Flawed Election aims to replace polemics with thoughtful debate, even as some contributors offer a renewed defense of the Court while others argue for fundamental reforms like the abolition of the Electoral College. The book includes contributions by New York University and University College London's Dworkin, Judge Richard Posner, Harvard Law School's Lani Guinier, the University of Chicago Law School's Cass Sunstein, New York University Law School's Richard Pildes, historian Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Berkeley political scientist Nelson Polsby, and Laurence Tribe, who argued on behalf of Vice President Al Gore before the Supreme Court
