5.0 out of 5 stars A brave Jeremiah of constitutional government., July 29, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Disaster by Decree: The Supreme Court Decisions on Race and the Schools (Hardcover)
Lino Graglia's career has been devoted to decrying usurpation by federal judges. Unlike most of the tenured cowards in academia, Graglia has used his insulation from politics in the way tenured professors are supposed to: as a license to point out uncomfortable truths. His honesty and opposition to the Left trends in legal "scholarship" cost him a prestigious appointment to a federal appeals court, but that didn't silence this model citizen. Too bad there aren't hundreds more like him. Bravo! Lino. This is a truly great book by one of the few remaining devotes of limited government and the rule of democratically-enacted law (not judges).

5.0 out of 5 stars Daring analysis of Supreme Court's most contentious cases!, May 29, 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Disaster by Decree: The Supreme Court Decisions on Race and the Schools (Hardcover)
Starting with the Supreme Court's decision in _Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka, KS_, Graglia shows that the emperor has no clothes. Claiming to be acting against racial discrimination, the Court first disallowed race-neutral policies, then actively enforced racial discrimination. The one hopeful element of Graglia's tale is that while people in Washington, DC proved supine in their unwillingness to oppose the Supreme Court's misdeeds, average people from Denver to Boston took to the streets in defense of self-government. The politics of the last 23 years owe much to the arrogations chronicled in Graglia's book.
