Joyce Lee Malcolm – SIGNED


In stock

SKU SE-007 Category Tags ,


Joyce Lee Malcolm’s classic on the origin of the right to bear arms was cited by Justice Scalia in the D.C. v. Heller opinion three times.  In this work Professor Malcolm seeks to explain the origin of this right and the language of the Second Amendment in the context of English history.  Many today wish to reconstrue or eliminate this controversial amendment.  Professor Malcolm wants consideration of its original intent and purpose.  As she explains:

“I am not an advocate but a historian and ask merely for a decent respect for the past.  We are not forced into lockstep with our forefathers.  But we owe them our considered attention before we disregard a right they felt it imperative to bestow upon us.”

We are pleased to offer this work as a special SIGNED leather edition.
