The US Constitution: Resources on the Background of Our Constitution

by James Wilson Institute on September 17, 2020

Our friends over at Real Clear Political Affairs have done an excellent job of collecting materials on the US Constitution. The links connect to some of the best resources on the important background to the Constitution and on how they apply today. Prof. Arkes’s essay, A Natural Law Manifesto, is on the list along with many other excellent resources from our friends.

You can access the collection here.

Law and liberty cannot rationally become the objects of our love, unless they first become the objects of our knowledge.
