by Elie Mystal
Elie Mystal, lawyer, analyst at MSNBC, and legal editor at The Nation, argues that Republicans are wrong when they tell you the First Amendment allows religious fundamentalists to discriminate against gay people who like cake. They're wrong when they tell you the Second Amendment protects the right to own a private arsenal. They're wrong when they say the death penalty isn't cruel or unusual punishment, and they're wrong when they tell you we have no legal remedies for the scourge of police violence against people of color. In fact, Mystal argues, Republicans are wrong about the law almost all of the time, and in his new book he explains why. Kirkus Reviews raved "there's something to learn on every page."
