Prominent constitutional scholar Christopher Wolfe challenges popular opinions by presenting an insightful and well-supported defense of originalist interpretations of the Constitution. He describes the traditional approach to constitutional interpretation and judicial review and then focuses his analysis on the due process clause, which has become the source of most modern constitutional law. Wolfe challenges the most influential defenders of judicial activism, including Laurence Tribe, Michael Dorf, Harry Wellington, and Mark Tushnet, and he persuasively explains the dire political consequences of taking the Constitution out of constitutional law.

How to Read the Constitution is the mature reflections of one of America's leading constitutional theorists and, in my view, the pre-eminent defender of an 'originalist' approach to constitutional review by courts. Wolfe is in full bloom.--Gerard Bradley, Notre Dame Law School
