Editorial Reviews


“Hoebeke explores the contradictions present in the movement to adopt the 17th Amendment and shows how this electoral change flies in the face of the intent of the framers of the Constitution… Well researched and clearly written, this work will be enjoyed by both general readers and scholars interested in either the Constitution or the US Senate.” 

—C. P. Chelf, Choice
