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 new introduction 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.
Robert H. Bork is the author of two New York Times best-sellers, Slouching Towards Gomorrah: Modern Liberalism and American Decline and The Tempting of America: The Political Seduction of the Law, and several other books, including Coercing Virtue: The Worldwide Rule of Judges. A Distinguished Fellow of the Hudson Institute in Washington, D.C., and the Tad and Diane Taube Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the Hoover Institution, Bork served as the United States Solicitor General from 1973 to 1977 and as Circuit Judge of the U. S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit from 1982 to 1988.
