Rejecting the views of both left and right, Mr. Levy evaluates the doctrine of original intent by examining the sources of constitutional law and landmark cases. Merciless and brilliant. In fascinating detail. . . Mr. Levy demonstrates that there can be no such animal [as original intent]. Anthony Lewis, New York Times Book Review

About the Author:

Leonard W. Levy, whose Origins of the Fifth Amendment won the Pulitzer Prize in history, is formerly Earl Warren Professor of Constitutional History at Brandeis University and Andrew W. Mellon All-Claremont Professor of Humanities and History at the Claremont Graduate School. His other writings, many of which have also won awards, include The Palladium of Justice, Blasphemy, The Establishment Clause, Freedom of the Press from Zenger to Jefferson, and Jefferson and Civil Liberties. He lives in Ashland, Oregon.

From Library Journal:

Among its many legacies, the Reagan administration will be remembered for its spirited defense of "a jurisprudence of original intent"the simplistic assertion that the Constitution has a fixed and unchanging meaning established by the founders. Levy, a noted constitutional scholar and Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Origins of the Fifth Amendment (1968) levels a biting critique at this doctrine. Focusing on such constitutional provisions as presidential power, the contract clause, and the Bill of Rights, Levy claims that original intent lacks a sufficient historical foundation. This rich, useful book is presented in terms of the ongoing debate about the legitimate role of the judiciary generally and judicial review particularly. An excellent resource for constitutional scholars. Edward C. Dreyer, Univ. of Tulsa, Okla.
