Timothy Sandefur has the first in what will be a series of posts by all of us at Positive Liberty about Akhil Amar’s new book, America’s Constitution: A Biography. Sandefur was kind enough to buy copies of this book and send them to me, Jon and Jason so we could all read it and comment on it. I’m still only about 1/4 of the way through the book so it may be a while before I add much of substance to the discussion, but I agree with Sandefur’s overall endorsement of Amar’s work. There are areas where I strongly disagree with him, but there is no question that he is among our finest constitutional scholars. His writing is clear and lucid and you can feel the reverence he has for the Constitution come through on every page. His work is a must-read for anyone who takes the Constitution seriously.
