From the Inside Flap:

"A remarkably illuminating guide to the way the Constitution and the Court actually work. . . . Reading this book is like being inside the Constitution."—Nat Hentoff, Columnist, Village Voice

"Thoughtful, accurate, and informative."—Albert J. Rosenthal, Columbia Law School

"A tour de force: a compact but comprehensive compendium of constitutional law that is both accessible to the lay person and helpful to the specialist. . . . It fills a unique niche in the voluminous constitutional law literature."—Nadine Strossen, President, American Civil Liberties Union

"The more time you spend leafing through this volume, the more you find yourself pausing to read, ponder and admire the entries. It is no small task to write concisely and well about complex and controversial subjects. Lieberman has the rare ability to pull off such a task with great panache."—Daniel J. Kornstein, New York Law Journal
