About the Author

Kent Greenfield is a law professor at Boston College, a former Supreme Court clerk, and an expert in constitutional and corporate law. His work has been featured in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Atlantic, and on CNN.


"A must read. Greenfield is one of the very few law professors in America with a serious background in both constitutional and corporate law, and his double expertise is reflected in almost every chapter."--Eric Segall, Dorf on Law
"A subtle, creative and intellectually brave assessment of the nature of corporate personhood and the legal and policy results--constitutional and otherwise-- that follow from that assessment. Greenfield offers thoughtful and often original views on topics ranging from the degree of First Amendment protection that corporations should receive to the nature of corporate behavior that shareholders and the broader public should come to expect."--Floyd Abrams, author of The Soul of the First Amendment
"In a lively and very readable book, Greenfield makes the case that corporations must have many, if not all, the constitutional rights that people have."-- Paul Smith, Georgetown University Law Center
"Professor Kent Greenfield has written a brilliant book on the role of corporations in American democracy. Greenfield gets us past the discussion of whether corporations should be regarded as persons and focuses on how they should be treated under the law. The book is provocative, original, and engaging and sure to be essential reading in grappling with the role of corporations in our political system."--Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean and Jesse H. Choper Distinguished Professor of Law, University of California, Berkeley School of Law
