The Constitution Today: Timeless Lessons for the Issues of Our Era

Wednesday, October 5, 2016 06:00 PM to 07:30 PM

Detail from book cover.

Description

When today's headlines revolve around momentous constitutional questions, journalists and busy citizens do not always see the stakes clearly.

In his remarkable new book, The Constitution Today, Akhil Reed Amar, America's preeminent constitutional scholar, considers the biggest and most bitterly contested debates of the last two decades—from presidential dynasties to congressional dysfunction.

He shows how the Constitution's text, history, and structure are a crucial repository of collective wisdom, providing specific rules and grand themes relevant to every organ of the America body politic.

Akhil Reed Amar is Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University, where he teaches constitutional law at both Yale College and Yale Law School.
