    Sitting Supreme Court Justice Breyer argues that the Constitution's lasting brilliance is that its great principles may adapt to cope with current situations rather than serve only as a static benchmark for a world that is dead and gone. Using examples from the areas of federalism to affirmative action, this is a vital contribution to the ongoing debate over the method and means used by the Supreme Court to approach the Constitution.

At a time when ordinary citizens may book international lodging directly through online sites like Airbnb, it has become clear that judicialawareness can no longer stop at the water's edge"--

    Between the seventh and the fifth century BC, the political regime in some city-states in Greece evolved from monarchy to a kind of government by the free citizens called democracy, and this book drafts the red line of this type of regime. It explains democracy’s four main Aristotelian features—the rule by turn, the rule of law, education, and the role of the middle class—and describes and cites the historical milestones in its evolution. Touching upon on all of the pioneering stages through which political democracy has passed, this account quotes, comments, and highlights the specific importance of the main writings of American, British, French, German, Greek, and Roman philosophers, economists, jurists, and sociologists, and provides an overview of the principal declarations and international treaties on human rights.
