The classical liberal constitution: the uncertain quest for limited government / Richard A. Epstein. Harvard University Press, c2014.

KF4550.E69 2013

 

The Classical Liberal Constitution is a study of the development of constitutional law in the United States.  The author analyzes both the structure of government under the Constitution and the major individual rights it guarantees, and provides food for thought by advocating a return to interpreting the Constitution in light of classical liberal theory rather than either of the opposing Originalist and Living Constitution models popular in current legal thought.
