The Art of Judging
The book introduces the American Legal system focusing on the role the Supreme Court should play in the interpretation of the Constitution. It sets a comparison between the two different styles of judging. Judicial craftsmen look backward for guidance: to the text of the Constitution, the original understanding of that text, and historical experience. Judicial statesmen look forward: to moral and political ideals and notions of the public good.
