An insightful collection of essays from leading voices on the challenges and promise of justice and law. This new book is accessible and interesting to a wide audience.

Erwin Chemerinsky on reconceptualizing federalism - John Echohawk on Native American rights - Jack Greenberg on Brown v. Board's legacy - Linda Greenhouse on how Supreme Court Justices evolve over time - Lani Guinier on reframing affirmative action - Antonia Hern ndez on what citizenship means after 9/11 - Anthony Lewis on broadening presidential power to fight terrorism - Janet Napolitano on security and rights after 9/11 - Charles Ogletree on achieving racial justice - Robert Reich on the economic inheritance of our children - Judith Resnik on Guant namo, Miranda, and public rights to fairness - Geoffrey Stone on sacrificing civil liberties in wartime.

The volume originates from a lecture series honoring legal legend John P. Frank, who represented Ernesto Miranda in the Supreme Court. It is edited and presented by Marjorie S. Zatz and Doris Marie Provine-both professors of Justice & Social Inquiry at Arizona State University-and Arizona attorney James P. Walsh, who was also a law partner to John Frank.
