Additional Information

Since at least 1971, when he published a seminal article on constitutional interpretation in the Indiana Law Journal, Robert Bork has been the legal and moral conscience of America, reminding us of our founding principles and their cultural foundation. The scourge of liberal ideologues both before and after Ronald Reagan nominated him for the Supreme Court in 1987, Bork has for fifty years unwaveringly exposed—and explained—the hypocrisy and dereliction of duty endemic among our nation’s elites, the politicization and adversary activism of our courts, and the consequent degradation of American society.

Now, for the first time, Judge Bork has gathered together his most important and prophetic writings in A Time to Speak, including a foreword and commentary by the author. The volume includes more than sixty vintage Bork contributions on topics ranging from President Nixon to St. Thomas More, from abortion to antitrust policy, and from civil liberties to natural law. It also includes several of his judicial opinions and transcribed oral arguments. A Time to Speak is an indispensable book for all who have harkened to the truths spoken so forthrightly, in season and out, by this great American original.

This hefty tome (715 pages) brings together essays and legal opinions written by Bork over a period of 45 years. It will undoubtedly help to seal Bork's standing as one of our era's foremost commentators on law and culture--particularly the struggle to preserve Western culture against its postmodern detractors.

Bork identifies one of the foundations of the postmodern attack as the uneasy alliance of individualism and egalitarianism. As he writes in his essay "Hard Truths About the Culture War" (1995):

"Individualism and egalitarianism may seem an odd pair, since liberty in any degree produces inequality, while equality of outcomes requires coercion that destroys liberty. If they are to operate simultaneously ... [they] must operate in different areas of life, and that is precisely what we see in today's culture. Radical egalitarianism advances, on the one hand, in areas of life and society where superior achievement is possible and would be rewarded but for... Read more
A Time to Speak is a terrific book. Anyone interested in constitutional law should immediately pick this up. Judge Bork engages in profound, fascinating discussions with other brilliant legal minds on natural law, the meaning of Constitutional provisions and amendments, the independent counsel act, antitrust law, and other very important issues. I should point out that the five stars I have given A Time to Speak does not mean I agree with Bork on every issue; I disagree with him on gay marriage and the minimum wage, for example. But I do strongly agree with his main argument: that the Constitution should be interpreted according to the original intentions of the people who wrote it. He opposes the doctrine of "the living Constitution," which changes according to the whims of judges. His main complaint is that since the early 1900s, the Supreme Court has invented rights that do not exist in the Constitution, starting with Lochner in the early 1900s up until the present time. He... Read more
In "A Time to Speak" Judge Bork includes some of his most insightful, controversial and original articles, decisions, arguments and essays that span over half a century as a public intellectual. From his writings that revolutionized thinking about antitrust law to his defense of original intent against political judging, this book is a treat for those who have long admired or are just discovering Judge Bork. Perhaps we would all be better off if you bought a copy for yourself and sent four more to Justices Ginsburg, Breyer, Souter and Stevens.
