A collection of essays that discuss almost all of the great constitutional issues of the last two decades, including abortion, euthanasia, capital punishment, homosexuality, pornography and free speech.

Professor Dworkin offers a consistently liberal view of the Constitution and argues that fidelity to it and to law demands that judges make moral judgments. He proposes that we all interpret the abstract language of the Constitution by reference to moral principles about political decency and justice. His moral reading therefore brings political morality into the heart of constitutional law.

The various chapters of this book were originally published separately and are now drawn together to provide the reader with a full-length treatment of Dworkin's general theory of law.
