Stephen Breyer. Making our democracy work : a judge's view. Alfred A. Knopf, 2010.

KF4575.B73 2010

 

In this book Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer addresses fundamental questions about the role of the Court.  Noted for its rejection of originalism, this book discusses what the Court must do to maintain the public confidence and argues for interpreting the Constitution in a way that works in practice.  Justice Breyer also emphasizes that the Court must respect the roles that other actors such as the president and Congress play in our democracy and that the Court has an obligation to build cooperative relationships with them.

This book addresses what motivates human creativity and how the law governing authors’ rights should be shaped in response to these motivations.  Drawing on a number of diverse sources, including literary philosophical, and religious works, the author offers solutions for crafting legal measures that facilitate an author’s ability to safeguard his or her work without entirely sacrificing the intellectual property policies in practice in the United States today.
