The Fallacies of States' Rights is the work of a major constitutional theorist at the top of his game. The exposition is clear, its logic razor-sharp, and its thesis powerful. Thinking with Barber as he advances his positive, ends-oriented constitutional theory, is consistently stimulating and satisfying. This is a first-rate study of American federalism. (Ken I. Kersch, Boston College)
All too often, discussions of American federalism are anchored in nostalgic platitudes about a nonexistent past or simplistic models of public choice. In this rigorously argued book, Barber shows that our federalism has always been based upon a strong national government, and that current popular accounts of states' rights, if looked at closely, are incorrect and incoherent. (Malcolm Feeley, University of California, Berkeley)
