By the time of his retirement in June 2010, the author had become the second longest serving Justice in the history of the Supreme Court. Now he draws upon his more than three decades on the Court, during which he was involved with many of the defining decisions of the modern era, to offer a book articulating not only the need for changes, but also what those improvements should be. This is a call to arms, detailing six specific ways in which the Constitution should be amended in order to protect our democracy and the safety and wellbeing of American citizens.--

Well written defense of the necessity of adding clarity and purpose to our Constitution through the Amendment process. Justice Stevens sees the Constitution as a framework for popular government (of, by, for the people, especially by). I strongly recommend Stephen Breyer's "Active Liberty" as a companion read.

This is a very interesting book. Retired Justice Stevens' arguments are very detailed and he gives background and historical information to support his ideas. I highly recommend this book.
