"Neglected Policies demonstrates the truth of the old academic adage that teaching and scholarship complement each other. The author's fresh approach to the study of public law unites case analysis with judicial process without burying the reader in numbers." — Judith Baer , Justice System Journal
"[A] valuable contribution to scholars in public law, policy, and politics, interested in constitutional interpretation and related questions of law and society. Faculty teaching graduate and upper-level undergraduate seminars in public law and policy broadly defined will find this book suitable as an additional text for their course."
— Marc Georges Pufong , Law and Politics Book Review
"[O]ffers a rich trove of materials relevant to its main contentions; among these, Strauber's view on contentious issues and cases related to elections, expressions, and other matters. . . . [A]n enlightened and informing work that would be well placed in any college or university library. . . . Recommended."
— J. D. Gillespie , Choice
"[T]he virtue of much of Strauber's analysis lies in his nuanced discussion of specific cases. . . . [T]hought-provoking. . . ." — George Thomas , Journal of Politics
"Strauber has one of those rare, comprehensive minds. . . . [He] approaches his subject with an unusually open mind. His critical skills are impressive, as is his ability to discern his own predilections. . . . I highly recommend the book. It provides a telling critique of contemporary interpretive theory. . . . [A]dmirable. . . . [B]uy Neglected Policies; it is that good."
— William Gangi , Perspectives on Political Science
"Strauber['s] book is an interesting contribution to constitutional jurisprudence." — Jon B. Gould , Perspectives on Politics
“Skillfully crossing the most jealously guarded of all the borders between law and other disciplines, Strauber offers a refreshing and incisive critique of the political goals of legal scholars. His urbane skepticism as to the merits of legal formalism, his sage evaluation of the case method of legal education, and his hard-headed tolerance for critique in law are high points in a study that is uniformly open-minded and accessible.” — Peter Goodrich, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law
“Strauber takes on the academic abyss of conventional constitutional interpretation with current examples from the interpretive front. This book is part of an exciting new constitutionalism bridging law, the social sciences, and the humanities.” — John Brigham, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
