As noted by Instapundit, the new book by Professor John C. Yoo, The Powers of War and Peace : The Constitution and Foreign Affairs after 9/11, is now available. Although Professor Yoo's book addresses some very serious subjects, expect flashes of wit as well from this controversial celebrity academic. After all, John Yoo has been recognized by UTR's Robing Room Report for being nothing short of "hilarious," as well as "unbelievably brilliant." The latter compliment is not surprising, since Professor Yoo is one of the Elect (OT 1994/Thomas); the former, however, is noteworthy, since not all Supreme Court clerks are funny.
By the way, the crowd-pleasing Professor Yoo will be a panelist at a star-studded symposium on the legacy of the Rehnquist Court. The symposium is being sponsored by the GW Law Review and will be taking place on October 27-28, 2005. Judicial celebs in attendance will include Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Judge Carlos F. Lucero (10th Cir.). How fabulous!
