Narrowing the Nation's Power: The Supreme Court Sides with the States


"John T. Noonan, Jr., brings impeccable scholarly and judicial credentials to his dramatic accusation that five members of the Supreme Court are systematically thwarting justice to Americans through a states rights policy that is essentially political and without basis in the Constitution. Judge Noonan's stature as a leading conservative thinker gives added prestige to this compact, lively and riveting account."--Norman Dorsen, Stokes Professor of Law, New York University; President of the ACLU, l976-l99l

"Written by a great scholar, independent thinker, lucid writer, and superb advocate, John T. Noonan, Jr.'s "Narrowing the Nation's Power provides a devastating attack on the logic of the Supreme Court's revival of states' rights, and makes complex legal doctrine enjoyable and readily understandable reading."--Jesse H. Choper, Earl Warren Professor of Public Law, University of California
