The Price of Rights: The Courts, Government Largesse, and Fundamental Liberties
To paraphrase the Book of Job, 'the state giveth and the state taketh away'. American government gives its citizens benefits such as Social Security, college scholarships, tax breaks, and licenses. But what do the courts do when it 'taketh away' these boons from individuals who criticize it bitterly or refuse to work on their holy day? The Price of Rights addresses the problem of how the judiciary reacts when a generous polity denies its bounty to people exercising their fundamental rights - an issue frequently ignored in college and law school civil liberties classes. Thus this book will be a valuable supplement for students taking such courses and should interest anyone desirous of safeguarding our Bill of Rights.
