The Constitution in 2020 is a powerful blueprint for implementing a more progressive vision of constitutional law in the years ahead. Timed to publish as the new Obama administration begins the hard work of reshaping the courts after the Bush era, the book provides a new framework for addressing the most important constitutional issues of the future in clear, accessible language. Edited by two of America's leading constitutional scholars and featuring some of America's finest legal minds-Cass Sunstein, Bruce Ackerman, Robert Post, Harold Koh, Larry Kramer, Noah Feldman, Pam Karlan, William Eskridge, Mark Tushnet, Yochai Benkler and Richard Ford, among others-the book tackles a wide range of issues, including the challenge of new technologies, presidential power, international human rights, religious liberty, freedom of speech, voting, reproductive rights, and economic rights. The Constitution in 2020 calls on liberals to articulate their constitutional vision in a way that can command the confidence of ordinary Americans.
