A Penguin Classic


With the Penguin Liberty series by Penguin Classics, we look to the U.S. Constitution’s text and values, as well as to American history and some of the country’s most important thinkers, to discover the best explanations of our constitutional ideals of liberty. Through these curated anthologies of historical, political, and legal classic texts, Penguin Liberty offers everyday citizens the chance to hear the strongest defenses of these ideals, engage in constitutional interpretation, and gain new (or renewed) appreciation for the values that have long inspired the nation. Questions of liberty affect both our daily lives and our country’s values, from what we can say to whom we can marry, how society views us to how we determine our leaders. It is Americans’ great privilege that we live under a Constitution that both protects our liberty and allows us to debate what that liberty should mean.
 
“Accessible, well-edited selections amply demonstrating the astute thinking and sharp voice of an indispensable legal mind.”
Kirkus, starred review

“Brettschneider reminds us that the right to dissent is essential to freedom. Ginsburg’s clear and frequently evocative language in her court opinions makes full use of this right.”
 Booklist
