The Federalist Society: How Conservatives took the Law back from Liberals by Michael Avery and Danielle McLaughlin

"Michael Avery and Danielle McLaughlin have written a compelling book about how the Federalist Society came to prominence, its tremendous influence in Republican presidential administrations especially in the selection of judges, and its conservative ideology on major issues of constitutional law. It is a story of how ideas, money, and careful planning came together to change the legal landscape. This well-written book is a must read for all who want to understand the conservative movement in law, its views and those advancing them." --Erwin Chemerinsky, Dean and Distinguished Professor, University of California, Irvine School of Law
