This is not a book about right vs. left. Rather it is about the

rule of law, a principle that transcends partisan politics,
and how vital it is to the survival of our country.

“We all need…to become experts in law in order to recognize lawlessness….’American Nero’ is…a kind of master class in law for the numb and the frozen.”
—Dahlia Lithwick for The Washington Post
