Richard L. Hasen, Chancellor's Professor of Law and Political Science at the University of California-Irvine, will be interviewed by Professor Kate Shaw, Co-Director of the Floersheimer Center for Constitutional Democracy, about his new book The Justice of Contradictions: Antonin Scalia and the Politics of Disruption, which will be published by Yale University Press in March 2018. The book provides an eye-opening look at the influential Supreme Court justice who disrupted American jurisprudence in order to delegitimize opponents and establish a conservative legal order. Hasen provides a nuanced perspective which demonstrates how Justice Scalia was crucial to reshaping jurisprudence on issues from abortion to gun rights to the separation of powers.
