Michael Waldman. The Second Amendment: a biography. Simon & Schuster, 2014.

KF3941.W35 2014

 

The text of the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is only 27 words long, but those 27 words have become the focal point of one of the most fiercely debated issues in American politics: the issue of gun control. In this book, Michael Waldman, President of the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law, takes us beyond the op-eds and soundbites to look at the complicated history of the Second Amendmentís origins, ratification, and subsequent interpretation.
