1988

Abstract:     
Contrasts the treatment of compelling interests and fundamental rights, applies the criticisms of fundamental rights as extra-constitutional and imprecise to the Court's treatment of compelling interests, suggests a basis for compelling interests to replace the Court's ad hoc announcements, and explores the implications for both rights and interests of basing both on constitutional rather than extra-constitutional values.
