William Eskridge and John Ferejohn propose an original theory of constitutional law whereby, while the Constitution provides a vision, our democracy advances by means of statutes that supplement or even supplant the written Constitution.

About the Author:

William N. Eskridge Jr. is the John A.Garver Professor of Jurisprudence at Yale Law School. John Ferejohn is the Charles Seligson Professor of Law at New York University School of Law.

Review:

"This breakthrough book marks a decisive turn in American constitutional thought – away from ancestor worship, toward a realistic understanding of how  real-world Americans make and remake their fundamental law."—Bruce Ackerman, Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science, Yale University (Bruce Ackerman)

“Why does our public law obsess about the Constitution, when so many of our most fundamental national commitments are embodied in subconstitutional law? In this illuminating and stimulating volume, a distinguished political scientist and a gifted public lawyer unravel that question. Eskridge and Ferejohn's redefining study shows how 'administrative constitutionalism'—agency elaboration of superstatutes, treaties, agreements, and state statutory regimes—both invites a 'deliberation-respecting' role for U.S. courts and ends up shaping America's national character.”—Harold Hongju Koh, The Legal Adviser, U.S. Department of State; Martin R. Flug Professor of International Law, Yale Law School

(Harold Hongju Koh)

Book Description Yale University Press, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Constitution is often conceived as our nation's Grand Blueprint and the embodiment of our Highest Aspirations. The authors, using prominent cases such as Brown v. Board of Education, maintain that this conception is myth. Instead, William Eskridge and John Ferejohn propose an original theory of constitutional law whereby, while the Constitution provides a vision, our democracy advances by means of statutes that supplement or even supplant the written Constitution.
