About This Item

(American Bar Association, Chicago, 2015). First Edition. Small Quarto. 541 pages, index. A major study by the leading scholar on the history of the Bill of Rights. It deals with the early history of rights in Europe and also what happened before 1791 that led to James Madison's first draft of each specific clause of the Bill of Rights. It also traces it to contemporary influences as it is applied to film, sports, literature, religion, and popular culture. The illustrations help to place every issue in context. The book is also inscribed by McWhirter to G. Robert Blakey, who was the head of the Law Department at Notre Dame and chief counsel on the House Committee on assassinations. A fine copy in its original condition.
