Brilliant. Colorful. Visionary. Tenacious. Witty.
Since his appointment to the Supreme Court in 1986, Associate Justice Antonin Scalia has been described as all of these things, and for good reason. He is perhaps the best-known justice on the Supreme Court today and certainly the most controversial. Yet most Americans have probably not read even one of his several hundred Supreme Court opinions.
Collecting the writing of the Supreme Court’s most outspoken and controversial justice, the author here presents speeches, rulings, and opinions that reveal Scalia’s wit and intelligence, both on the bench and off.
