Cosmic constitutional theory: why Americans are losing their inalienable right to self-governance.

American constitutional law has undergone a transformation whereby issues once left to the people have increasingly become the province of the courts. In this book Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson calls for a plainer, simpler, self-disciplined commitment to judicial restraint and democratic governance, a course that alas may be impossible so long as the cosmic constitutionalists so dominate contemporary legal thought.
