An innovative, insightful, and often humorous look at the Constitution’s lesser-known clauses, offering a fresh approach to understanding our democracy.
In this captivating and witty book, Jay Wexler draws on his extensive background in constitutional law to shine a much-deserved light on some of the Constitution’s lesser-known parts. For a variety of reasons, many of the Constitution’s “odd clauses” never make it to any court, and therefore never make headlines or even law school classrooms that teach from judicial decisions. Wexler delves into many of those more obscure passages, which he uses to illuminate the essence of our democratic process, including our tripartite government; the principles of equality, liberty, and privacy; and the integrity of our democracy.
“The writing is lively and the analysis instructive…The book provides a fresh vantage point from which to consider the Constitution.” — Choice Magazine
