From a leading constitutional lawyer who has sued every president since LBJ, a masterful explication of the true "pillars of our democracy"

On November 9, 2016--and again on January 6, 2021--many Americans feared that our democracy was on the verge of collapse. But is it? In an erudite and brilliant evaluation of the current state of our government, noted constitutional scholar Burt Neuborne administers a stress test to democracy and concludes that our unprecedented sets of constitutional protections, all endorsed by both major parties, stand between us and an authoritarian federal regime: namely the division of powers between the three branches, the rights reserved to the states, and the Bill of Rights.

Neuborne parses the genius of our constitutional system and the ways its built-in resilience will ultimately survive current attempts to dismantle it. While many important issue areas--womens right to choose, LGBTQ rights, separation of church and state--risk erosion, Neuborne argues that the Constitutions inherent defense mechanisms can buy us time. But only an active citizenry will enable us to defend our cherished rights and protections, fulfilling Ben Franklins charge to keep our republic.
