Waldron’s extensive catalog of writings explore the rule of law, constitutionalism, homelessness, torture, and many other topics. His most recent book, One Another’s Equals: The Basis of Human Equality, was published in 2017. He has critically examined the notion of human dignity, and the impacts of a leveling of social classes by way of elevation of all to royalty. In 2012, he wrote about human dignity in Dignity, Rank, and Rights.
He has also written about his research into the philosophies of John Locke and his approach to law and politics and is a fierce critic of the idea of judicial review, which would give federal judges the power of oversight over the legislative and executive branches.
