We the Corporations: How American Businesses Won Their Civil Rights by Adam Winkler

Reviewed by Marc Alexander

Marc Alexander

Adam Winkler, Professor of Law at UCLA, has written a remarkable history: We the Corporations: How American Business Won Their Civil Rights. The story is cinematic in scope, beginning in colonial times, ending with Citizens United (2010) and Hobby Lobby (2014), filled with larger-than-life characters such as Justices John Marshall, Roger Taney, Stephen Field, Lewis Brandeis, Charles Evans Hughes, orators/attorneys Daniel Webster, and Roscoe Conkling, sprinkled with wit, and unified by big themes. While the story is too rich and detailed for a movie, it might just fit into a six-part Netflix series.
