The Next 25 Years: The New Supreme Court and What it Means for Americans By Martin Garbus Cover Image
May take several months to arrive, if available from publisher


In The Next 25 Years, renowned First Amendment lawyer Martin Garbus examines what will be the impact of the new Supreme Court on the future of our republic. Drawing on extensive knowledge of Constitutional law and legal precedents, Garbus, one of our most astute legal historians, defrocks the executive branch’s grip over the judiciary as an extension of its own executive powers. He warns of the threat of an incoming "textualist" bench that wishes to roll back more than a century’s worth of hard-won reforms. And he offers the first clear-eyed account of how the coming bench may imperil our way of life and endanger the liberties you may have thought were our inalienable rights.

“An ardent defender of our freedom, Martin Garbus reminds us that the Supreme Court directly affects the lives of all Americans. In the last half century, the Court has played a central role in the effort to make America a better and fairer land. . . . Garbus alerts us to what he sees as the current Court's undoing of much of that important work.” –Senator Edward M. Kennedy

“Mr. Garbus . . . argues that the ideological lock put on our federal court system in the past thirty years by the Republican right wing constitutes and clear and present danger to the basic legal and moral assumptions of a modern democratic republic. He lays out the evidence . . . and his case is sound. This work ought to be read by every voter in this country.” –E. L. Doctorow

“If you haven't read The Next 25 Years, you may awaken one morning and ask, 'What Happened to America?' This is a clarion cry for every American to act before our constitutional way of life is all but a distant memory.” –Nadine Strossen, president of the American Civil Liberties Union
