John Paul Stevens. Six amendments: how and why we should change the Constitution. Little, Brown and Company, 2014.

KF4557.S74 2014

 

In this book, his second since retiring from the U.S. Supreme Court in 2010, Justice Stevens proposes six constitutional amendments that he believes would change America for the better, including amendments to abolish the death penalty, prohibit political gerrymandering, and provide protection for legal limits on campaign spending. Described by its publisher as a “call to arms,” Six Amendments is already stirring public debate and will surely continue to do so.

HD9565.G65 2014

 

In recent years, hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking,” has opened up previously untapped sources of oil and gas, profoundly altering the global energy market.

He also examines the controversy surrounding fracking’s effects on the environment, and weighs the costs and benefits of its continued use.
