Balkinization

Guest Blogger: Cass Sunstein

I've invited University of Chicago law professor Cass Sunstein to guest blog on Balkinization. He'll be putting up a post in the next couple of days.

Cass is the Karl N. Llewellyn Distinguished Service Professor of Jurisprudence at the University of Chicago's Law School, and also has an appointment in the Political Science department. I consider him the most important legal scholar of my generation. There are few people I can think of who have made more important contributions to legal scholarship in such a wide number of different subjects. He's also an old hand at the op-ed form, having written for all the major newspapers as well being a regular contributor to the New Republic. His latest book, which is coming out this week from Basic Books, is called The Second Bill of Rights. I'm delighted to have him aboard.

Welcome Professor Sunstein to Balkanization!

I hope that you will not only blog on your much awaited new book, but also on your excellent review in "The New Republic" this week of James Surowiecki's book, "The Wisdom of Crowds." Sadly, it is only available right now to TNR subscribers...

All the best.
 

Welcome to Balkinization, Professor Sunstein!

If you could kindly tell me the citation for the article you wrote about FDR and FDR's attempts to ensure more rights for citizens and/or expand the Bill of Rights, well I would gladly appreciate it. I read it in an offprint 4 years ago.
 

Welcome Professor Sunstein!

4 years ago I read an article you wrote about FDR and rights. If you could provide me the citation to the article, which I read in an offprint, I'd gladly appreciate it.
 

yeah baby!
now to somehow convince Akil Amar (sp?) on board.

Heck, six more and it's a shadow SCOTUS.
Which would be a very good thing to have.

Thank you both for keeping the light of reason lit; I can't pretend to constrast your scholarly impacts, but each of you eased the moral torture of law school for at least one progressive sufferer.
 

To Carl: Thanks much for the interest. I'm not sure what article you're referring to -- maybe in the LA Times? -- but the argument can be found in my The Second Bill of Rights: FDR's Constitutional Vision and Why We Need It More Than Ever, which should be out next week. On the New Republic review: It should be available free on LEXIS/NEXIS, yes? Anyway many thanks.
 

To Professor Sunstein: Actually the article I was referring to I think was a law review article. If you have the citation for it, great, if not, well I think your new book probably covers the same ground. I look forward to reading it.
