Much worth reading; I'm no expert on the substance, but it's certainly a fun and interesting read, and my sense is that the criticisms of Douglas, from what I've heard, are indeed quite apt. (Certainly Douglas's constitutional work, with which I am familiar, betrays the flaws that Posner identifies.) Thanks to Orin for the pointer.
