Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Berns, a distinguished constitutional scholar and Olin professor at Georgetown University, does indeed take the U.S. Constitution seriously. The seven formidable essays that make up this new analysis explore the Constitution and its central place in the development of the first nation "to be built on the foundation of the rights of man." Of particular interest is Berns's view of minorities under the Constitution. Overall, the book will be well received by serious students of the American political experience, but others might find it difficult going. Recent recommended works on the Constitution of broader appeal are Michael Kammen's A Machine That Would Go of Itself ( LJ 10/1/86) and Christopher and James Lincoln Collier's Decision in Philadelphia ( LJ 5/1/86). Kenneth F. Kister, Pinellas Park P.L., Fla.
