We the Corporations – Professor Adam Winkler

Adam Winkler is professor of constitutional law at UCLA. His most recent book, We the Corporations, chronicles the astonishing story of one of the most successful yet least well-known “civil rights movements” in American history. Uncovering the roots of Citizens United, Winkler shows how that controversial Supreme Court decision was the capstone of a two-hundred-year struggle over corporate personhood and constitutional protections for business. Bringing to life the legendary lawyers and justices involved in the dramatic yet often overlooked cases that extended our most fundamental rights to corporations—Daniel Webster, Louis Brandeis, Stephen Field, and even Thurgood Marshall—We the Corporations reveals how the nation’s most powerful companies transformed the Constitution into a bulwark against the regulation of big business.
