Cass R. Sunstein, Constitutional Personae: Heroes, Soldiers, Minimalists, and Mutes (Oxford Univ. Press 2015).

Abstract: "Since America's founding, hundreds of U.S. Supreme Court Justices have issued a vast number of decisions on a staggeringly wide variety of subjects. Yet as the eminent legal scholar, Cass R. Sunstein shows, constitutional law is dominated by a mere quartet of character types, regardless of ideology : the hero, the soldier, the minimalist, and the mute."--Jacket flap.
