" 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. "
