Peter H. Schuck, the Simeon E. Baldwin Professor Emeritus of Law
(Princeton University Press)
In “One Nation Undecided,” Peter Schuck tackles poverty, immigration, affirmative action, campaign finance, and religious objections to gay marriage and transgender rights. For each issue, he provides essential context; defines key concepts and values; presents the relevant empirical evidence; describes and assesses the programs that now seek to address it; and considers many plausible solutions. Each chapter is self-contained so that readers may pick and choose among the issues that interest and concern them most. His objective is to educate rather than proselytize — the very nature of these five issues is that they resist clear answers; reasonable people can differ about where they come out on them.
