Judge Robert Bork’s latest book, Coercing Virtue: The Worldwide Rule of Judges, is by far his slimmest volume (139 pages plus endnotes), and it is a variation on his long-running criticisms of judicial activism. This latest variation is nevertheless important and not well understood. In an introduction and four short chapters, Bork explains and dissects the problem of international judicial overreach.
