Editorial Reviews


“Brian Kalt has written a truly marvelous book on what appear to be constitutional esoterica that could however pose genuine problems for the American constitutional and political order.”—Sanford Levinson, University of Texas Law School
(Sanford Levinson 20110919)

"Brian Kalt's Constitutional Cliffhangers is full of insights into constitutional interpretation, a lively topic of concern among both scholars and the public more generally. Without in the least diminishing its scholarly contribution, the book is also playfully written, so that it is a delight to read."—Robert William Bennett, Northwestern University
(Robert William Bennett 20110927)

"Brian Kalt is an evil genius when it comes to conjuring up potential national political crises and clearly explaining the legal and constitutional ramifications even for non-lawyers like me. The What-If scenarios make your scalp twitch. I recommend this book highly to wonks, wonkettes, and laymen who are interested in our brilliant but sometimes flawed political system."—C.J. Box, New York Times best-selling author of Back of Beyond and Force of Nature
(C.J. Box )

"Brian Kalt has identified unresolved constitutional questions that could easily lead to chaos and crisis. He is at his best when he writes the script that puts us into the quagmire. I hope that what he writes about never happens, but it has happened before and it will happen again. For a White House Counsel, Constitutional Cliffhangers is nothing but nightmare-and great fun nonetheless."—Gregory B. Craig, former White House Counsel 
(Gregory B. Craig )

There are additional cliffhangers besides these. What if you combined several of these? Our Constitution is only as good as our commitment to it. Even with sections 3 and 4 of the 25th amendment, would a major presidential illness be treated any differently than Woodrow Wilson's stroke?
