Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution | [John Paul Stevens]

Six Amendments: How and Why We Should Change the Constitution

By the time of his retirement in June 2010, John Paul Stevens had become the second-longest-serving Justice in the history of the Supreme Court. Now he draws upon his more than three decades on the Court, during which he was involved with many of the defining decisions of the modern era, to offer a book like none other. Six Amendments is an absolutely unprecedented call to arms, detailing six specific ways in which the Constitution should be amended in order to protect our democracy and the safety and wellbeing of American citizens.

Publisher's Summary

For the first time ever, a retired Supreme Court Justice offers a manifesto on how the Constitution needs to change.

By the time of his retirement in June 2010, John Paul Stevens had become the second-longest-serving Justice in the history of the Supreme Court. Now he draws upon his more than three decades on the Court, during which he was involved with many of the defining decisions of the modern era, to offer a book like none other. Six Amendments is an absolutely unprecedented call to arms, detailing six specific ways in which the Constitution should be amended in order to protect our democracy and the safety and wellbeing of American citizens.

Written with the same precision and elegance that made Stevens's own Court opinions legendary for their clarity as well as logic, Six Amendments is a remarkable work, both because of its unprecedented nature and, in an age of partisan ferocity, its inarguable common sense.

    "For lawyers, law students and historians only."
    What did you love best about Six Amendments?

    Cut, dried, and to the point.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author, J. Stevens.


    Have you listened to any of Daniel Hagen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first one. His narration was fine.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    For lawyers, law students and historians only. Anyone else will be bored to tears even though the book is relatively brief.

    "Makes a Strong Case"

    I enjoyed the book, but believe that I might have been able to follow it better in written rather than audio format. I found the book to be well reasoned and well researched. I benefitted from having some understanding of Constitutional Law. Perhaps I am prejudiced since I usually agreed with Judge Stevens when he was on the bench.
