About this product
- DescriptionAn innovative, insightful, often humorous look at the Constitution''s lesser-known clauses, offering a fresh perspective on the document's relevance today For a variety of reasons, many of the Constitution's more obscure passages never make it to any court and therefore never make headlines or even law school classrooms, which teach from judicial decisions. In this captivating and witty book, Jay Wexler draws on his extensive professional and educational backgrounds in constitutional law to demonstrate how these odd clauses have incredible relevance to our lives, our government's structure, and the integrity of our democracy.
