Product Details


“Every American should read this book—especially those who think they disagree with Justice Gorsuch. . . . Whether readers end up agreeing or disagreeing with Justice Gorsuch’s ideas, our republic will be richer for readers having considered them.”—U.S. Circuit Judge Amul Thapar 

“Justice Gorsuch has written a temperate book, with civility shown to all. Such fairness, though, does not reduce the fervor with which he urges that we keep this country a republic.”National Review
“Serves as an introduction to the man and his philosophy while reminding the reader of the need to understand and participate in the nation’s civic affairs.”Washington Examiner

“This book and Justice Gorsuch’s distinguished judicial career confirm the reputation I heard so long ago—he is a legal superstar. The stories in his book, including a delightful one about an airplane ride sitting next to a young girl who was frightened of the turbulence and just needed a friend, also confirm my early impression of his kindness.”Legal Communication & Rhetoric

A Republic, If You Can Keep It is a powerful legacy for the next generation of Americans. Justice Gorsuch reminds us of the necessity for judges to do the right thing even when unpopular, to dispense justice dispassionately, to promote consistency in the law, and to be content serving in anonymity.”—Alberto Gonzales, former United States Attorney General
“Justice Neil Gorsuch’s Western spirit—friendly, forthright, optimistic, and deeply egalitarian—shines through in A Republic, If You Can Keep It. Addressing urgent problems of law, ethics, and government, he is practical rather than abstract, humane rather than technical, and incorrigibly good humored.”—Christopher DeMuth, Distinguished Fellow, Hudson Institute
A Republic, If You Can Keep It is a delightful primer on civics as well as the reflections of a deeply thoughtful judge.”—Mary Ann Glendon, Learned Hand Professor of Law, Harvard University
“A glimpse of the character and career of a Justice who will profoundly influence American law for decades to come. And there’s plenty in these essays for interested readers of all stripes, whether conservative, libertarian, moderate, or liberal.”—Eugene Volokh, Gary T. Schwartz Distinguished Professor of Law, UCLA School of Law
“In A Republic, If You Can Keep It, Justice Gorsuch speaks to where we have been as a country and where we are going. It should be required reading for anyone interested in our Constitution and our Republic in the twenty-first century.”—Tim Meyer, professor and director, International Legal Studies Program, Vanderbilt University Law School

“In this powerful book, Justice Neil Gorsuch explains why he has chosen to make the connection between civic knowledge, civil dialogue, and self-government the focus of his public activities. A Republic, If You Can Keep It is an invaluable case for the importance of civics and civility that will inform constitutional debates among Americans of all perspectives.”—Jeffrey Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center
