The Heritage Guide to the Constitution has just been released this month; it could prove to be an invaluable guide for rhetoric stage applied history studies in Law. From the inside flap:
“With the leadership of former Attorney General Edwin Meese, and in conjunction with the nation’s preeminent think tank——The Heritage Foundation——The Heritage Guide to the Constitution brings together more than one hundred of the nation’s best legal experts to provide the first ever line-by-line examination of the of the complete Constitution and its contemporary meaning.
“Stressing the original intent of the Framers as the authoritative standard of constitutional interpretation, and never straying from the Constitution and the definitive writings of the Framers——especially the invaluable notes taken at the Constitutional Convention by James Madison, the widely recognized analysis in The Federalist Papers, and Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story’s 1833 classic Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States——this volume is unique, comprehensive, and authoritative.”
