"Corruption in America"


    Zephyr Teachout


"Teachout's beautifully written and powerful book exposes a simple but profound error at the core of the Supreme Court's McCutcheon v. FEC decision.  The originalists on the Court forgot their history.  This is that history--and eventually it will provide the basis for reversing the Court's critical error."

      ---Lawrence Lessig, author of Republic, Lost: How Money Corrupts Congress--and a Plan to Stop It.


"This is a wonderful and important book. Zephyr Teachout shows what's wrong with how the Supreme Court thinks about democracy and political corruption, how we got to this terrible place, and that it wasn't always this way--and doesn't have to be.  There's a lot of learning and original synthesis here, and also an unmistakable voice, which blends a lively intelligence with passion for democracy as a way of life."

      ---Jedediah Purdy, author of a Tolerable Anarchy: Rebels, Reactionaries, and the Making of American Freedom
