Abstract

Many commentators have expressed alarm at the apparent rise of constitutional hardball in the United States, the United Kingdom, and elsewhere. This short essay introduces the idea of "anti-hardball" as a potential antidote. Complicating matters, hardball and anti-hardball are not necessarily opposed in practice. Short-term hardball tactics will generally be more justified, the essay suggests, when tied to a longer-term anti-hardball strategy.

Keywords: hardball, anti-hardball, constitutional politics, judicial reform, voting reform
