| Book Description: |
John McGinnis and Michael Rappaport argue that the text of the Constitution and its Amendments should be adhered to by the Supreme Court because it was enacted by supermajorities. A text approved by supermajorities has special value in a democracy because it has unusually wide support and tends to maximize the welfare of the greatest number.
