       Author   of the NEW YORK TIMES bestsellers
Slouching  towards   Gomorrah and The Tempting ofAmerica


Coercing Virtue is an important work for anyone interested in the expansion of governmental
power over society and culture, the rule of law, and the growing internationalization of our
politics. Judge Robert Bork is our nation's most intelligent and forceful critic of the role
of judges in modern American society. In this compelling new book, he focuses on the
legalization of international affairs and the politics of Western nations. Judge Bork argues
that judicial review has become an all-too-ready tool for elites who wish to avoid the demo-
cratic process to impose their favored values upon societies.
                                -JOHN  C. Yoo, professor of law, University of California
                                                 at Berkeley School of Law (Boalt Hall)

Robert Bork has spent decades defending American democracy against the ambitions of
activist courts. Coercing Virtue highlights new threats posed by recent trends in international
law-and   shows why these threats, drawing on foreign sponsorship, may be harder to
contain than previous distortions of our own Constitution.
