Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Thank God for a leader like Mr. Scalia"
    Any additional comments?

    It's too bad that a follower of the constitution like Mr. Scalia is so often in the minority on the court's decisions. But our supreme court has been rewriting the constitution through re-interpretation since the very first supreme court, which was selected by George Washington. I recommend "Original Meanings" by Rakove and "The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution" by Gutzman. These two go well with "Scalia Dissents".

    "interesting subject matter, the reading was odd"
    What made the experience of listening to Scalia Dissents the most enjoyable?

    good material


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    the performance was odd. the reading style seemed to change at intervals without any real relevance to the material. like the reader took a week off here and there, then didn't remember his tone from before. I haven't noticed that in other audible products.

    "A great compilation of Scalia's writings!"

    I has suspected as much from Antonin Scalia! He's a remarkable intellect, and a great justice! There are many facets of American life that would be better had he been in the majority, instead of the minority!
