|Summary:|| By the time of his retirement in June 2010, the author 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 articulating not only the need for changes, but also what those improvements should be. This is a 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 his own Court opinions legendary for their clarity as well as logic, this is a remarkable work, both because of its unprecedented nature and, in an age of partisan ferocity, its inarguable common sense.
