The Supreme Court endorses terrorists’ rights, flag burning, and importing foreign law. Is that in the Constitution? You’re right: it’s not. But these days the Constitution is no restraint on our out-of-control Supreme Court. The Court imperiously strikes down laws and imposes new ones purely on its own arbitrary whims. Even though liberals like John Kerry are repeatedly defeated at the polls, the majority on the allegedly “conservative” Supreme Court reflects their views and wields absolute power. There’s a word for this: tyranny.

In Men in Black, radio talk-show host and legal scholar Mark R. Levin dissects the judicial tyranny that is robbing us of our freedoms and stuffing the ballot box in favor of liberal policies. As Rush Limbaugh writes in his introduction, “Men in Black is a tremendously important and compelling book.”

Quotes & Awards

  • Men in Black is one of the finest books on the Constitution and the judiciary I’ve read in a very long time. It combines history, law, and current events in an extremely interesting, insightful and compelling examination of a dire problem…There is no better source for understanding and grasping the seriousness of this issue than Men in Black.”

    Edwin Meese, US attorney general of the United States under President Ronald Reagan

  • “I am proud to endorse this book by a constitutional scholar, a brilliant lawyer, a pundit extraordinaire, an exceptional radio talk show host, a patriot, and my very good friend. I hope it sells a million and that twice that many read, absorb, and take to heart its critical message.”

    Rush Limbaugh, from the introduction

  • “Mark Levin proves once again why I call him ‘The Great One.’ He describes a Supreme Court that is out of control and out of order. Men in Black is a modern conservative classic.”

    Sean Hannity

  • “Conservative talk radio host, lawyer, and frequent National Review contributor Mark R. Levin comes out firing against the United States Supreme Court...Levin’s hard-charging style and dire warnings of the court’s direction will strike a resonant tone of alarm.”

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 2/19/2014

    " A fascinating look at the Supreme Court. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Louis | 2/19/2014

    " This is an outstanding book for anyone who has watched the news or read a newspaper involving some insane ruling by a court and has asked themselves "How in the world did we get to this point?" This book does an excellent job of taking some of the major issues or our time (abortion, free speech, guns, etc.) which have gotten so convoluted from what our Founding Fathers intended, and shows how judges have used precedents (stare decisis) that have had erroneous rulings and subsequent courts based their decisions on bad precedents instead of adhering to the Constitution and overturning those bad rulings. A wonderful and fascinating book and an easy read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron Kolb | 2/12/2014

    " Levin does his usual stellar job. A well-researched and reasoned presentation of the slow and subtle power grab by the "progressive" leaning court. Especially helpful in light of recent rulings and the pending SCOTUS decision on Obamacare. Highly recommended. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Douglas | 2/11/2014

    " This right-wing rant is the result of shallow reasoning, biased reporting, and disingenuous scholarship. Levin's prejudice and combativeness ruin his effort. He conveniently dismisses all of the Supreme Court's so-called liberal decisions with which he disagrees on ideological grounds as "judicial activism," while ignoring the modern judicial activism of conservatives. In fact, Levin actually fails to mention the greatest judicial activism in American history: When five conservative Republican appointees of the Supreme Court selected George Walker Bush as President of the United States in 2000. Levin's book is a waste of time; and more significantly, it is dangerous because the uninitiated may believe it to be accurate and the result of bona fide legal scholarship. Fortunately, I did not buy this book, but read a copy from my public library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Northman 737 | 2/8/2014

    " This was a good book that brought up many necessary issues within the judicial branch of our governmental checks and balances. The only problem is that this guy is clearly your typical right wing-nut. I can't stand when right wing-nuts complain about left wing-nuts and don't see the hypocrisy. The judicial system certainly has taken at full speed down the path toward trying to corrupt our constitution and laws with it's crybaby, bleeding heart policies and that needed to be said, it continues to need to be said, but the best way to say it is with a common sense "what's best for the majority" solution (which neither side is intelligent enough to understand) and not a all abortion is bad because jesus said so approach. If you're looking to learn some facts and hear some good points and you can get past the religious bull****... or if you like the religious bull**** then you should read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeremy Hatfield | 2/2/2014

    " I liked this better than Liberty and Tyranny. Some of Mark's best segments on his show is when he expounds law and the workings of our judicial system. This book probably contains some of his best thoughts on the latter. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Bethany | 1/20/2014

    " Provides an overview of the usual conservative critique of the activist Supreme Court, so it would be a good introduction to people interested in that debate, but I didn't find any new insights or consider it particularly well written. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tammy Dorrycott | 1/18/2014

    " This book will show you just how far from the way our founding fathers wanted the supreme court they really are. It will alarm you at how many liberties they have taken with our society. A must read for every American citizen to really understand how things are supposed to work. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tasha | 1/12/2014

    " I enjoyed this book because I learned alot more about the constitution. I didn't nessecarily agree with everything, but I enjoyed the opportunity to think about Levin's point of view. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ben | 12/27/2013

    " Mark Levin is a very angry man. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Seana | 12/15/2013

    " Say what you want about Mark Levin, but he's knows his stuff. I'd actually like to re-read this to refresh my memory. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Olivia | 12/2/2013

    " It has been a few years since I read this book, but I remember it laying out a fairly clear cut case showing how activism in the courts has usurped the power of the people. It explored a number of landmark cases that those of us who haven't studied law should know about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Atchisson | 11/5/2013

    " In case the libs don't yet understand why we want constructionist judges rather than those that make laws up on the bench. If they really want to do that, maybe they should actually RUN for an office rather than be appointed.... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pamela | 10/5/2013

    " This was my first supreme court book and was a little heavy on cases and citing cases. Trying to read it again, but it isn't easy! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dean | 6/19/2013

    " Worth the read; you will learn a lot about the Supreme Court! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ann | 2/7/2013

    " Oh no Soto meyor is scary! But then again we made it through some real bozos before her! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsey | 9/17/2012

    " Learned a lot from this book - makes me wish I knew more about law and history "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carol Caldwell | 7/28/2012

    " After reading this book I was amazed we have survived as a nation. Had no idea that some of the justices were in such bad shape. Great book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew | 7/20/2012

    " Absolutely fantastic, "The Great One" never fails to deliver and this is no exception. He provide an objective look at how our Supreme Court has time and time again stepped outside the bounds of its jurisdiction. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcia | 3/18/2012

    " really interesting, tells breifly about those who have served on the supreme court past and present, and how the court has evolved over the years through political manouvering to become something it was never meant to be. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 1/21/2012

    " Outstanding book; everyone should read this. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jim Bouchard | 1/4/2012

    " So you think you know what the Supreme Court does- or what it's supposed to do? Read this; you may be surprised! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ernie Dawson | 6/30/2011

    " This is one of the first whistle blowers on the overwhelming power of the Supreme court to legislate from the bench and how it wrecks our society. Roe v Wade is a prime example. What became law was never legislated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandra James | 5/31/2011

    " A compelling review of the history of constitutional law in America and the present struggle against the secular progressive movement toward a more liberal, European style of legislation threatening our constitutional freedoms. A must read for every patriot. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dave | 5/9/2011

    " Levin is great. Book is so clear and makes so much sense should be required reading in schools. I encourage every Liberal to read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ted | 4/16/2011

    " An exceptional book that details the differences of "Soft Tyranny" vs. "Hard Tyranny", and the dangers of "Statism" against our liberties as Americans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 3/13/2011

    " Mark offers a wonderful view of the Federalist concerning today's statist society "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mike | 3/13/2011

    " A gameplan for reattaining the most successful governing model in the history of man, featuring natural law, individual rights, limited government and free markerts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 3/11/2011

    " Mark Levin is the professor of freedom. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brad | 2/15/2011

    " I do not understand a word of this book. It is all a little over my head in terms of how the politics and economics work. The purpose and theme of this book make me love it. Understanding that our liberties are being given away in droves, not taken away by force. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristen | 1/25/2011

    " This is an excellent book. I don't agree with everything 100% on immigration, but it is very good. and I agree, "We conservatives need to get busy." "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alicia | 1/12/2011

    " As always, Mark Levin is wonderful! This book shines the light of truth on all the dark lies the Left tells in constant-drumbeat fashion about whatever topic in which they wish to attain power over others: global warming (i.e. "climate change"), health care, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chuck | 12/21/2010

    " Not a real fan of Mark Levin on the radio, but his book does make a lot of sense. Slow to start and dry ending, but his commentaries on such things as the "welfare state" and "immigration" in the meat of the book are quite good and definitely worth the lesson in history. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jesse | 11/25/2010

    " Left vs. right is only a distraction. The real struggle has, and always will be, between liberty and tyranny. "
