Judicial Power and American Character
Censoring Ourselves in an Anxious Age524
This book examines judicial power as an integral part of our increasingly anxious and intolerant society. Nagel argues that judicial decisions are often an effort to stifle disagreement and to censor important beliefs and important traditions. Ranging over many controversial topics (including Robert Bork, Clarence Thomas, abortion, flag-burning, gay rights, and school prayer), the analysis crosses conventional political and philosophical lines.

"Professor Nagel's provocative book questions why an essentially undemocratic body like the Supreme Court should get the last word on the troubling moral issues of our day....An erudite argument."Commonweal
"The best analysis yet of the Court's method, and of the relation of its style to its purposes."Chronicle
"This is a major contribution to constitutional theory and practice, a significant work of social criticism, and a great pleasure to read. As for an originality of ideas, it is here in abundance. Professor Nagel writes from a perspective that pays enormous respect to the common understandings of society."Lee C. Bollinger, Provost, Dartmouth College
