Short Synopsis
In Scalia's Court: A Legacy of Landmark Opinions and Dissents, Kevin A. Ring presents a collection of Justice Antonin Scalia's legal opinions and an analysis of their impact on the American legal system.

Full Synopsis
The sudden passing of Justice Antonin Scalia shook America. After almost thirty years on the Supreme Court, Scalia had become as integral to the institution as the hallowed room in which he sat. His wisecracking interruptions during oral arguments, his unmatched legal wisdom, his unwavering dedication to the Constitution, and his blistering dissents defined his leadership role on the court and inspired new generations of policymakers and legal minds.

Now, as Republicans and Democrats wage war over Scalia's lamentably empty Supreme Court seat, Kevin A. Ring, former counsel to the U.S. Senate's Constitution Subcommittee, has taken a close look at the cases that best illustrate Scalia's character, philosophy, and legacy. In Scalia's Court, Ring collects Scalia's most memorable opinions on free speech, separation of powers, race, religious freedom, the rights of the accused, abortion, and more; and intersperses Scalia's own words with an analysis of his legal reasoning and his lasting impact on American jurisprudence.

"This compendium of classic Scalia offers an excellent counterpoint for readers of The Legacy of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, edited by Scott Dodson." ----Library Journal

"[Scalia's] writings---with their plain language and constitutional moorings---will guide generations to come." ---Speaker of the House Paul Ryan

"[Scalia's] pungent opinions so clearly stated that his words never slipped from the reader's grasp." ---Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, U.S. Supreme Court
