A Matter of Interpretation:
Federal Courts and the Law
Antonin Scalia
Edited by Amy Gutmann

Book Description | Table of Contents

ADDITIONAL REVIEWS:

"As the most intellectually consistent and stylistically gifted member of the Supreme Court, Scalia has never hidden his enthusiasm for the American tradition of mistrusting courts and lawyers. The basics of his judicial philosophy are now usefully collated into this volume. . . . Scalia's arguments have shaped the debate in our time; he has gone a long way toward changing how judges interpret the letter of the law."--David Franklin, Slate

"[Scalia] is formidably persuasive, by turns seductive, fierce, funny, charming--and always brilliant."--Paul Reidinger, American Bar Association Journal

"A Matter of Interpretation demonstrates both the attraction of Scalia's 'textualist' theory and his qualities as a judicial statesman. . . [His] elegant essay, the most concise and accessible presentation of his views, argues eloquently that judicial authority can only be based on the statutory or constitutional text."--Michael Greve, Reason
