Epps deconstructs Scalia and Tea Party claims alike.,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Wrong and Dangerous: Ten Right Wing Myths about Our Constitution (Hardcover)
This is a very readable book for the lay person. Epps shows that Scalia and the Tea Party make claims based more on their political and emotional views than on any historical basis. The book does much to remove the edifice that the right has constructed. The sheen of respect given to these views are removed and the amendments, especially the 14th amendment, are portrayed in a historical perspective.
