In this volume the editors have collected some of his most provocative and well-written dissenting opinions and offer analytic introductions to each set of opinions. They include Scalia's opinions in the areas of constitutional structure, judicial power, statutory interpretation, police power, speech, religion and social regulation. 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.
