WE THE PEOPLE: A Progressive Reading of the Constitution for the Twenty-First Century by Erwin Chemerinsky 

From gun control to reproductive health, a conservative court will reshape the lives of all Americans for decades to come. University of California Berkeley Dean and respected legal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky expertly exposes how conservatives are using the Constitution to advance their own agenda that favors business over consumers and employees, and government power over individual rights.

“Chemerinsky’s rock-solid arguments are rooted in history, in a profound progressive philosophy.”Kirkus Reviews, starred review
