Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Sandefur has posted the first criticism of Amar’s new book on the Constitution and does an excellent job of handling Amar’s far too expansive view of the commerce clause. While all four Positive Liberty contributors are big fans of Amar’s scholarship, this is one area of his book that really jumped out at all of us as being inaccurate. I’m reading the section on the reconstruction amendments currently and will probably write something about that issue soon.
