Summary, etc.: "Matched with Scalia brilliance was a rare judicial humility--the conviction that the law should not be based on any judge whim or preference but on the original intent of the Constitution Framers. In many of his dissents, he sounded the alarm against judicial activism, relentlessly defending the rights reserved by the Constitution to the people and their states. In Scalia Court, Kevin Ring has assembled the great jurist best and most powerful opinions, showcasing the quotable justice take on issues of enduring importance, including contentious constitutional debates that continue today."--Jacket.
