Jason Lewis reminds us that the concept of states' rights, as bequeathed by the Founding Fathers to a grateful nation, was about a constitutional framework intended to limit the missteps of government and provide the greatest amount of freedom by not allowing the consolidation of power in the nation's capitol. He defines the essence of our constitutional republic and highlights the legal history of the relationship between the states and the federal government.
Jason takes a deep and thoughtful look at the history and principles behind states rights in America. He is one of the great teachers of our day--Mr. Lewis presents information in a clear, concise, and entertaining way. I especially enjoyed the bonus commentary provided at the end of the book.
