"His voice is conservative but with a surprising twist....[Nagel] suggests that the Court's 'new federalism' jurisprudence falls far short of restoring state government and politics to their full and proper vigor. "--The Washington Post
"A subtle and compelling analysis of the leading cases, which makes up the bulk of his splendid book, Nagel shows, first, that the Supreme Court has not really reasserted federalism but rather "domesticated" it. --The Weekly Standard
"Mr. Nagel...has produced a book that is at once scholarly and engaged...The case he makes is compelling."--The Washington Times
"No recent book matches Nagel's thoughtful and thought-provoking observations on federalism, the Supreme Court, and the state of American politics."--Michael S. Greve, AEI
"Confirms Nagel's reputation as one of the few truly radical thinkers writing on the Constitution....The book will enrage some and trouble others, but no one interested in constitutional law--or the health of the federal Republic--can afford to ignore Nagel's views."--H. Jefferson Powell, Duke University
