In this appendix to Desperately Seeking Certainty, the authors imagine what the constitutional scholars examined in their book would have to say about a latke recipe.
"A primer for lay readers, Desperately Seeking Certainty is provocative and penetrating even for those on the inside of the constitutional theory game. Farber and Sherry have given us a wonderful book."—Barry Friedman, New York University School of Law
"Desperately Seeking Certainty is at its best on the attack; the authors' criticisms are clear, sensitive and usually fair."—Garrett Epps, New York Times Book Review
