About this Item

A handsome dark grey-blue full leather Collector's Edition signed by the author on the signature page. In fine unread condition in the original shrinkwrap with gold gilt cover designs and page edges, moire silk endpapers and bound-in silk bookmark. Stephen Breyer is currently an Associate Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court, having been appointed by U.S. President Bill Clinton in 1994. His appointment to the Court followed a full and illustrious career on the First Circuit Court of Appeals where he served as Chief Judge of the Circuit from 1990 until his Supreme Court appointment. Justice Breyer also played a significant role on the U.S. Sentencing Commission from 1985-89 that implemented the new, and often controversial, Federal Sentencing Guidelines on November 1, 1987 during his term. Considered one of the brightest justices on the court, he often votes with the "liberal" wing of the court but not always. This book deals with his judicial philosophy and his belief in judicial deference to decisions made by popular vote, that all of us are responsible for participating in that vote, and his interpretive views on the role of "active" liberty in the context of modern liberty A very important book. The photo lights make the blue lighter than it is. Bookseller Inventory # 2795
