Description

"A marvelous instrument for introducing citizens to their Constitution" (Mortimer J. Adler), "this is exactly the kind of book that former Chief Justice Burger, as Chairman of the Bicentennial Commission, has been pleading with scholars and scholarly presses to produce" (Thomas L. Pangle, University of Toronto).

Author Biography

Denied admission to the Illinois bar in 1950 after he refused on principle to answer questions about his political associations, George Anastaplo took his case to the Supreme Court, and lost, 5-4. In a famous dissent-which Justice William J. Brennan said "immortalized George Anastaplo"-Justice Hugo L. Black wrote, "We must not be afraid to be free." George Anastaplo is professor of law at Loyola University of Chicago, lecturer in the liberal arts at the University of Chicago, and author of The American Moralist. He has been honored by the recent two-volume Festschrift, Law and Philosophy.
