    Can the U.S Constitution be understood independent of the principles enunciated in the Declaration of Independence Does the Constitution exist to protect democracy, or do democratic elements of the republic exist to protect individual liberty Is it possible that critics of judicial activism on the Right and Left have mistaken their preferences for Constitutionality Should judges defer to legislatures because the latter are of the people , and legislative mistakes are easier to clean up than Can the U.S Constitution be understood independent of the principles enunciated in the Declaration of Independence Does the Constitution exist to protect democracy, or do democratic elements of the republic exist to protect individual liberty Is it possible that critics of judicial activism on the Right and Left have mistaken their preferences for Constitutionality Should judges defer to legislatures because the latter are of the people , and legislative mistakes are easier to clean up than judicial precedents Timothy Sandefur grapples with these and related questions in a book that sets the Constitution in the context of the Declaration, and maintains that the former cannot be properly understood or applied without the principles of individual liberty espoused in the latter Progressives , on the Right and Left, have convinced several generations of Americans that the Constitution favors majoritarianism over individual rights, democracy over liberty Sandefur, however, says that legislatures incline toward tyranny as easily as monarchs, and that courts see their role properly when they restrain lawmakers within the bounds of the Constitution as seen through the lens of the Declaration The Conscience of the Constitution makes a compelling, thoughtful case, in accessible and vigorous prose, that we need to return to a jurisprudence, as well as a framework for lawmaking and implementation that couples these two founding documents

    This was my first Timothy Sandefur book, and it was exceptional from start to finish In it, he paints us a picture of a purposive and principled constitutional order one chartered and given color by the values set forth in our Declaration of Independence With an abundance of revealing references and lively analogies, Sandefur demonstrates that our Constitution has a specific normative direction based on substantive political values that demands bold resolutions to some of the legal academy This was my first Timothy Sandefur book, and it was exceptional from start to finish In it, he paints us a picture of a purposive and principled constitutional order one chartered and given color by the values set forth in our Declaration of Independence With an abundance of revealing references and lively analogies, Sandefur demonstrates that our Constitution has a specific normative direction based on substantive political values that demands bold resolutions to some of the legal academy s most controversial debates Along the way, he takes his distinctive approach to bear on a host of entrenched views about the warrant of majority rule, the primacy of states rights, the modesty of the Fourteenth Amendment, the impropriety of so called judicial activism, and of course, the unspeakable evils of Lochner Engaged readers will come away with a greater appreciation for the primacy of liberty, the bounds of sovereignty, the nature of the rule of law and the genius of our Republic I look forward to exploring the remainder of Sandefur s catalog

  4. Brian Ruddock Brian Ruddock says:

    Sandefur s argument is a strong and compelling one I m certainly glad I read this book and feel smarter for it Further, he writes clearly and avoids excessive legalese this book is absolutely approachable for non academics.I give it three stars because, at times, it is repetitive and somewhat out of order Look forward to readingof his articles and papers but will probably avoid any longer form content.
