For people who follow such matters, the intellectual firefight over a 1996 symposium appearing in the conservative monthly journal First Things provided an endless stream of controversy and, perhaps, amusement. The participants--among them Robert Bork and Charles Colson--offered their views on what conservatives commonly call "judicial imperialism." Put another way, they asked whether the judicial branch of government has imperiled representative democracy by subsuming legislative authority. The writers came dangerously close to calling the U.S. government illegitimate--so close, in fact, that several of their critics accused them of fomenting revolution. The End of Democracy? collects the original symposium, all of the important responses to it--including contributions appearing in a variety of journals and by authors such as William J. Bennett, Gertrude Himmelfarb, and William Kristol--and an epilogue by First Things editor Richard John Neuhaus. Wannabe political theorists will devour this book, as will anyone who enjoys internecine warfare on the right. H-5
