Are you concerned about the current political polarization and serious economic and social uncertainty in the United States today? Peter Frey’s powerful, fresh, and fair-minded book, Reimagining Our American Republic: A Commonsense Vision for Uncommon Times, provides solid reasons for hope and a clear direction forward. After educating readers on the background of the issues affecting America today and examining political problems passed down from previous generations, Frey offers detailed, thoughtful proposals—both practical and provocative—on how we can alter the way we govern ourselves and restructure our government in areas from education and voting rights to healthcare and defense—all while staying true to the intentions of the Founding Fathers. Frey’s book is a call to action to the growing number of Americans—including young people—who are ready to understand and face the critical complexities of the present-day situation and take action to move our country beyond them. Frey presents straightforward and optimistic proof that there are judicious solutions at hand. The book will energize readers, encourage discussion, and inspire anyone who is eager for new ideas, honest change, and making a positive impact on our country during these historic times. As Frey asks in the book, “If not now, when?” Frey is a published author, research scientist, and professor emeritus at Northwestern University.

Now with a new epilogue-- an unprecedented and unwavering history of the Supreme Court showing how its decisions have consistently favored the moneyed and powerful. Few American institutions have inflicted greater suffering on ordinary people than the Supreme Court of the United States. Since its inception, the justices of the Supreme Court have shaped a nation where children toiled in coal mines, where Americans could be forced into camps because of their race, and where a woman could be sterilized against her will by state law. The Court was the midwife of Jim Crow, the right hand of union busters, and the dead hand of the Confederacy. Nor is the modern Court a vast improvement, with its incursions on voting rights and its willingness to place elections for sale. In this powerful indictment of a venerated institution, Ian Millhiser tells the history of the Supreme Court through the eyes of the everyday people who have suffered the most from it. America ratified three constitutional amendments to provide equal rights to freed slaves, but the justices spent thirty years largely dismantling these amendments. Then they spent the next forty years rewriting them into a shield for the wealthy and the powerful. In the Warren era and the few years following it, progressive justices restored the Constitution's promises of equality, free speech, and fair justice for the accused. But, Millhiser contends, that was an historic accident. Indeed, if it weren't for several unpredictable events, Brown v. Board of Education could have gone the other way. In Injustices, Millhiser argues that the Supreme Court has seized power for itself that rightfully belongs to the people's elected representatives, and has bent the arc of American history away from justice.
