--Shelf Awareness (Starred Review)

Praise for Burt Neuborne's Madison's Music

"A veteran civil liberties lawyer delivers the sobering message.... Neuborne sees how different readings and interpretations of the Constitution will always cause problems. The Constitution is not above politics; it is often shaped by it.... [T]imely, frightening, and, hopefully, galvanizing reading."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Neuborne's elegant book... provides an important guide, grounded in the First Amendment itself, for those working toward an electoral system more deserving of the label of democracy."
--David Cole, The New York Review of Books

"[A] detailed history of the transformation of First Amendment law."
--Adam Liptak, The New York Times

"A bold new approach to Interpreting the Constitution."
--The Huffington Post

"An urgent message that deserves a wide readership."
--Kirkus Reviews

"[E]legantly examines James Madison's intent when he initially drafted the First Amendment"
--Erwin Chemerinsky, The Chronicle of Higher Education
