What the framers meant when they crafted the Constitution is a never-ending battle. At the heart of many of today's political controversies, Original Meaning looks at the ideology and interest from which the Constitution arose--and how Americans have attached different meanings to the document from the moment it was published. Examine the classic issues: federalism, representation, executive power, individual rights, and the idea that the Constitution should become law. A major, must-read work of reinterpretation. 439 pages, softcover.
