In Engines of Liberty: The Power of Citizen Activists to Make Constitutional Law, David Cole presents a fascinating perspective on constitutional law by recounting three engaging stories of enormous constitutional change and of the organizations and individuals, whose efforts achieved such change. Cole’s accounts are well supported with citations to documents and personal interviews, all written in an accessible, engaging, and clear style. The Author highly recommends this first-rate work to law, general academic, and public libraries.
