"Definitive." --Tom Patterson, Chairman, The Goldwater Institute

About the Author

Alan Korwin, author of three books and co-author of eight others, is a full-time freelance writer, consultant and businessman with a twenty-five-year track record. He is a founder and two-term past president of the Arizona Book Publishing Association, which has presented him with its Visionary Leadership award, named in his honor, the Korwin Award. He has received national awards for his publicity work as a member of the Society for Technical Communication, and is a past board member of the Arizona chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists.
Mr. Korwin wrote the business plan that raised $5 million in venture capital and launched the in-flight catalog SkyMall; he did the publicity for Pulitzer Prize cartoonist Steve Benson's fourth book; working with American Express, he wrote the strategic plan that defined their worldwide telecommunications strategy for the 1990s; and he had a hand in developing ASPED, Arizona's economic strategic plan. Korwin's writing appears nationally regularly.
Korwin turned his first book, The Arizona Gun Owner's Guide, into a self-published best-seller, now in its 23rd edition. With his wife Cheryl he operates Bloomfield Press, which has grown into the largest publisher and distributor of gun-law books in the country. It is built around eight books he has completed on the subject, including the unabridged federal guide, Gun Laws of America, an expanding line of related items, and countless radio and TV appearances. His 12th book, on the rapidly growing limits to free speech, is underway.
Alan Korwin is originally from New York City, where his clients included IBM, AT&T, NYNEX and others, many with real names. He is a pretty good guitarist and singer, with a penchant for parody (his current band is The Cartridge Family). In 1986, finally married, he moved to the Valley of the Sun. It was a joyful and successful move.

David B. Kopel is Research Director of the Independence Institute, a public policy research organization in Golden, Colorado. He is also an Associate Policy Analyst with the Cato Institute, in Washington, D.C. Kopel is the author of over five dozen articles in law reviews and other scholarly journals, and of 10 books. He is co-author of the only university textbook on firearms policy, Gun Control and Gun Rights (NYU Press, 2002). In the Heller case, Kopel authored an amicus brief for the International Law Enforcement Educators & Trainers Association (ILEETA) and a large coalition of law enforcement organizations and district attorneys. The brief was cited four times in the Court's opinions. At the Supreme Court, Kopel was one of three lawyers who joined Alan Gura at the counsel table on March 18, 2008, to assist him in the presentation of the oral argument in the Heller case.
Among Kopel's many books on firearms law and policy: No More Wacos: What's Wrong with Federal Law Enforcement, and How to Fix It (with Paul Blackman), which won the Thomas S. Szasz Award for Outstanding Contributions to the Cause of Civil Liberties; Guns: Who Should Have Them? ; and The Samurai, the Mountie, and the Cowboy: Should America Adopt the Gun Controls of Other Democracies? which was named Book of the Year by the American Society of Criminology, Division of International Criminology.

Alan Korwin and David Kopel are two of the most prolific and influential thinkers in the gun rights debate and this book is the ultimate example of their strengths. Korwin is a master at compiling information and distilling it down into comprehensible language. Kopel is an academic and intellectual with a knack for slicing right to the heart of complex issues and explaining their significance in clear and concise language. Together they paint a clear picture of the past, present, and probable future of the debate over the Second Amendment in the courts.
I was honored that the authors chose to include a short essay of mine to include in the volume and am very proud to have my thoughts appear alongside such prestigious company.
"The Heller Case: Gun Rights Affirmed" is an essential reference that should be in the library of every lover of liberty.

Director, The Firearms Coalition

Format: Paperback
This book is well written and exposes what the media has regularly ignored - that the Supreme Court has ruled many times prior to the Heller decision that Americans have the right to bear arms albeit not directly as a result of a challenge under the Second Amendment. It's an easy read if you want to be one of the most informed persons on the court's consistent ruling of an individual right to bear arms.

Format: Paperback
This book is a mandatory reference for understanding the Heller Case. Equally important, it's a bridge to cases such as those brought against Chicago and San Francisco immediately after the Heller victory. Those cases will depend, in large part, on areas covered by the authors. Further, for future firearms issues, gun owners are waiting with some trepidation for the federal shoe to drop. The Korwin/Kopel book will be the starting point for addressing such questions as, "what possible public interest could be served by a nationwide ban on military style semi-automatic rifles or overriding state CCW laws?" This reader believes Second Amendment advocates should be ready to speak out on these questions. The "Heller Case" is not just history, it contains information essential for addressing new challenges to firearms ownership and use.

Format: Paperback
Korwin's Heller book is my second purchase from this author. I am an avid reader of court opinions. If there are any fellow Americans out there who hold an interest in understanding court decisions but are unsure as to whether the US Supreme Court decisions are in English or legalese, this is the book for them. The author Alan Korwin uses clear as day English and clear reasoning to explain what the MSM newspapers of our day work mightily to obscure. This book would be a great value even if it were only 50 pages long, at 448 pages it is a fantastic value.
