Hardcover. New. $75. * During his thirty years on the United States Supreme Court, the late United States Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia left an indelible impression not just for his influential conservative opinions, quick intellect and larger-than-life presence, but for the clarity and grace of his judicial writing style. In this volume the editors have collected some of his most provocative and well-written representative opinions and offer analytic introductions to each set of opinions. They include Scalia's opinions in the areas of constitutional structure, structure and procedures of the judiciary, fundamental rights and freedoms, rights of the accused, and statutory and treaty interpretation. The book also includes three of Justice Scalia's important concurrences. Each chapter contains an introduction by the editors. Scalia's writings are appreciated as exceptional among judicial opinions not just for the clear reasoning of his legal decisions and viewpoint, but for his sometimes witty, always accessible and carefully chosen language. An index to books cited by Scalia offers us the sources of his study on the given opinion. With a general index.
