Scheiber New York Times Book Review [A] well-argued and clearly written volume...By the clarity and persuasiveness of their detailed analysis of particular cases, they...establish that progress is made most securely when one proceeds with caution and humility. -- T. R. S. Allan Cambridge Law Journal This book amounts to an energetic and often highly illuminating discussion of how constitutional interpretation inevitably involves substantive choices but is not simply a matter of making things up...On Reading the Constitution reminds us of the extent to which our understanding of constitutional interpretation remains in a primitive state...Tribe and Dorf's book counts as an unusually articulate contribution to the large number of recent works attempting to justify, to preserve, and to extend the work of the Warren Court. -- Cass Sunstein New Republic A provocative, well argued book. -- John Moeller Political Science Quarterly
