Editorial Reviews


"Truly one-stop shopping for anyone interested in understanding the meaning and significance of the historic health care cases of 2012. With contributions by some of the most insightful and influential thinkers in the field, this volume clarifies and expands upon what the ACA litigation did and did not signify, what it says about the legacy of the Roberts Court, and where we go from here. An invaluable read."-Dahlia Lithwick, senior editor, Slate

"This is a wonderful collection of essays about "the case of the century" by the nation's leading scholars. Each page yields new and valuable insight."-Barry Friedman, Jacob D. Fuchsberg Professor of Law, New York University School of Law

"This remarkable book shows beyond doubt that, contrary to Justice Robert Jackson's famous quip, the Supreme Court is neither infallible nor final. The health care case is over, but the argument over what it will mean has just begun. Anyone who seeks an appreciation of the stakes of that debate will find this diverse set of provocative essays indispensable reading."-Michael C. Dorf, Robert S. Stevens Professor, Cornell University Law School

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This collection of essays is well worth reading, especially while everyone is debating the validity, effectiveness, and constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Healthcare Act. Each piece is written in a clear and professional style. In terms of expressed political or legal bias, this book weighs all sides of the arguments, presenting factual, well-sourced information for the reader to contemplate and evaluate. All of articles are extremely informative and insightful.

If you want to see into the guts of the PPACA, and intend to speak with any authority on the healthcare case, definitely delve into to this book for elements of the controversy that might be otherwise overlooked.
