AEI scholar and historian Walter Berns has spent his academic career defending the United States Constitution. In his latest collection of essays, Democracy and the Constitution (AEI Press, September 2006), he addresses issues such as natural law, civil and states’ rights, multiculturalism, patriotism, the First Amendment, and the roles of academic and religious institutions.

Enduring questions of American political thought are explored in this volume, including: Was the American Revolution really a revolution? What is the proper relation between the states and the Union? What are the powers of government in perilous times? What is the origin of our inalienable rights?

Please join Mr. Berns as he examines these questions and defends America’s institutions of liberal democracy. Joining him in the discussion will be Judge Robert Bork of the Hudson Institute and George Will, syndicated columnist and panelist on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos. AEI’s Lynne V. Cheney will moderate.
