Descriptions du produit

The Supreme Court's 5-4 decision in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, " which struck down a federal prohibition on independent corporate campaign expenditures, is one of the most controversial opinions in recent memory. Defenders of the First Amendment greeted the ruling with enthusiasm, while advocates of electoral reform recoiled in disbelief. Robert Post offers a new constitutional theory that seeks to reconcile these sharply divided camps. Post interprets constitutional conflict over campaign finance reform as an argument between those who believe self-government requires democratic participation in the formation of public opinion and those who believe that self-government requires a functioning system of representation. The former emphasize the value of free speech, while the latter emphasize the integrity of the electoral process. Each position has deep roots in American constitutional history. Post argues that both positions aim to nurture self-government, which in contemporary life can flourish only if elections are structured to create public confidence that elected officials are attentive to public opinion. Post spells out the many implications of this simple but profound insight. Critiquing the First Amendment reasoning of the Court in Citizens United, "he also shows that the Court did not clearly grasp the constitutional dimensions of corporate speech. Blending history, constitutional law, and political theory, Citizens Divided "explains how a Supreme Court case of far-reaching consequence might have been decided differently, in a manner that would have preserved both First Amendment rights and electoral integrity.

A New Take on an Old Debate 30 juillet 2014
Par adeichen - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
A wonderful new take on how campaign finance cases should be interpreted. Based on Robert Post's Tanner lectures, this book tackles the controversial decision in Citizens United v. FEC. Post argues that the government has—since the first major campaign finance case to reach the Supreme Court in 1976 (Buckley v. Valejo)—been submitting the wrong arguments to the Court. By advancing the compelling interest of "electoral integrity", Post, at least in this reviewer's opinion, does a wonderful job expanding the debate, giving proponents of campaign finance regulation new hope in confronting the ever-growing reality of complete failure in the case law of the Supreme Court. This book is in no way an easy read, as it is filled with legal jargon and complex judicial analysis, but it should be highly recommended, if only to expand the way we might think about the First Amendment and regulating campaign finance.
An ingenious book that should be required reading for every layman interested in campaign finance 6 août 2015
Par Justin Kroes - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
This book deserves more than a modicum of positive praise. As a student of environmental science rather than politics (at least, academically) or constitutional law (at all), I will need to re-read the book to glean its full value. Why does this book deserve five starts? For one, it is impeccably written. But most importantly, after reading through the portion of the book comprising the lectures, you will have further questions about the book. There are two more portions that helped clarify many of my questions, and confirm many of the observations I made about the lectures based on my knowledge about history and modern politics. The second portion is a commentary and critique of the lectures by four different authors. The commentary ranges from good to penetrating. But best of all, the author of the lectures actually responds, in the third and final section of the book, to this commentary by addressing his own rhetorical shortcomings and the validity of the points in the commentary. Though the commentary packs few punches, no literary bloodshed is present. Post (the author of the lectures) is gracious to the commentators, despite (or admittedly perhaps because of) the fact that they do not fundamentally make him reconsider the main thrusts of his argument. This book helped to bring clarity and some academic confirmation to what was prior little more than a deep liberal suspicion of Citizens United vs. FEC and the effect of disproportionate spending on elections. In the end, I walk away with a sense that my concerns were valid, but with a deeper understanding of the ways in which the Supreme Court reached its decision and also a more sincere empathy with conservative concerns about freedom of speech. I now possess a greater vocabulary and knowledge base with which to discuss this issue with my friends--conservative, liberal, or dull.
Intelligent analysis of an important subject 21 juin 2015
Par J. Davis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I would say this is an excellent book, but with a slight caveat-- it's written only for a certain audience. If you're not very interested and knowledgable in campaign finance reform (do people still say wonkish?) you won't like it. Intelligent analysis of an important subject. Starts with two thoughful and articulate essays by Robert Post with responses by Lawrence Lessig (who I'm familiar with) ,Pamela Karlan, Frank Michelman, and Nadia Urbinati (who I'm not, and ends with Post's reply. Karlan is fairly persuasive as a campaign reform skeptic; pointing out that corporate election spending is only part of a larger problem--what about the corrupting influence of non-corporate billionaires like Sheldon Adelson?

If campaign finance reform stirs you, it's worth a read. if you're not familiar with the subject, I would suggest a different book (is there a Campaign Finance Reform book for dummies)?
The included comments by other scholars make this book an excellent starting point to think about American politics 28 juin 2015
Par slclio - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Rooted in the complex relationships between rationality, original intentions, and history, Post's two lectures elucidate an issue that is so important but also one that often seems to devolve into a political football to be kicked around without sufficient reflection. The included comments by other scholars make this book an excellent starting point to think about American politics, political campaigns, democracy, and how money and power intersect. Challenging content, i loved it.
Powerful and Readable 9 août 2015
Par Robert C. Berring - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Robert Post is one of the leasing public intellectuals in the United States. This book,based on a series of lectures, demonstrates why. Post puts the Supreme Court decision in Citizens United into an theoretical and practical context. It is also readable. It is hard to over-emphasize the importance of this decision, an importance that is playing out before our eyes in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election. A very timely book.
