Principles in Practice: "Unstuck" or Sticky?

In previous writings, Professors Balkin and Siegel (the authors), both together and separately, have made major contributions to the scholarly literatures on constitutional doctrine and on social movement activism. Their recent essay, Principles, Practices, and Social Movements, attempts to bridge the two fields at a high level of abstraction, albeit with useful examples. The bridge is an elegant structure, but not without flaws. It is a valuable project that will provide a point of departure for future scholars who may wish to cross the same divide.
