Anthony M. Kennedy sat at the ideological center of the Supreme Court, and his pivotal role on the Rehnquist Court only grew in importance on the Roberts court, where he was the lone “swing justice.” The Tie Goes to Freedom is the first book-length analysis of Kennedy, and it challenges the conventional wisdom that his jurisprudence is inconsistent and incoherent.
Using the hot-button issues of privacy rights, race, and free speech, this book demonstrates how Kennedy forcefully articulated a libertarian constitutional vision. The Tie Goes to Freedom fills two significant voids–one, by examining the jurisprudence of the man at the ideological center of the Supreme Court; the other by demonstrating the compatibility of an expansive judicial role with libertarian political theory.
