ABSTRACT
Features the book "The Partial Constitution," by Cass R. Sunstein. Attack on status-quo neutrality, which is a temptation to view existing distributions of property, income, legal entitlements, wealth and natural assets as in some way the natural order of things; Sunstein's vision of a Constitution that limits the power of political factions to use the state for their own partial purposes; Example of the formative power of law, namely, America's institution of chattel slavery.
