STEPHEN BREYER ON THE SUPREME COURT, INSCRIBED TO RUTH BADER GINSBURG.

BREYER, STEPHEN. The Court and the World: American Law and the New Global Realities. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2015. Hardcover, dust jacket. Light shelfwear.

FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED ON THE TITLE PAGE: "To Ruth, My friend & colleague—21 years (!)—together—(and often with others too) / with much admiration, appreciation, in friendship & affection / Stephen."

Breyer's book, published in 2015, argues against judicial isolationism in an increasingly interconnected world. In his 20 years on the court, Breyer writes, he has seen with each year a greater number of cases involving foreign questions. To answer these intelligently, courts need to be versed in international as well as US law; to do otherwise is to "try to navigate the globe with a blindfold." Ginsburg shared Breyer's views on the importance of considering international law—not surprising given her early studies of the Swedish legal system.
