"Ian Millhiser offers a perfect short read for a key moment in US constitutional history, after Republicans hijacked the court"

But this short, powerful new book by the legal journalist Ian Millhiserpinpoints the gigantic threat that could thwart most of the progress embodied in those two pieces of landmark legislation: the new 6-3 conservative majority on the supreme court. Writing clearly and succinctly, Millhiser dissects many of the worst opinions the modern court has rendered about voting rights, administrative law, religion and forced arbitration. After reading his cogent arguments, it becomes perfectly obvious why he thinks it’s necessary to end “with a note of alarm”.
