The Constitution is one of the most revered documents in American politics. Yet this is a document that regularly places candidates in the White House who did not get a majority vote, in addition to giving the President the power to overrule both houses of Congress on legislation he disagrees with on political grounds. Taking a hard look at these and other unjust provisions of our much-venerated Constitution, Sanford Levinson examines how too many of its articles promote either unfair or ineffective government. Updated with a new afterword to answer its critics and further engage in the debate, Our Undemocratic Constitution boldly challenges the American people to undertake a long overdue public discussion on how they might best reform this most hallowed document and construct a constitution adequate to our democratic values.

Sanford Levison holds the W. St John Garwood and W. St John Garwood , Jr. Centennial Chair in Law at the Unversity of Texas Law School. His books include Constitutional Faith (1998); Written in Stone (1998); Wrestling With Diversity (2003) and the edited volume, Torture: A Collection (2004).
