For the first time ever, a retired Supreme Court justice offers a manifesto on how the Constitution needs to change. 

By the time of his retirement in June 2010, John Paul Stevens 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 like none other. Six Amendments is an absolutely unprecedented call to arms, detailing six specific ways in which the constitution should be amended in order to protect our democracy and the safety and well being of American citizens. 

Written with the same precision and elegance that made Stevens’ own Supreme Court opinions legendary for their clarity as well as logic, Six Amendments is a remarkable work, both because of its unprecedented nature and, in an age of partisan ferocity, its inarguable common sense.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Stevens, the liberal Justice who retired in 2010, aims ‘to avoid future crises before they occur’ with his new book, which proposes a half-dozen changes to the Constitution that would ‘nullify judge-made rules’…Stevens’ deceptively slim volume packs a wallop as it illuminates current controversies in constitutional law.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The former Supreme Court justice proposes constitutional changes to restore the old republic…A refreshing set of opinions. One wishes that other retired justices would speak their minds so clearly, providing well-crafted arguments for others to take up.”
