America's Constitutional Soul by Harvey C. Mansfield


America's Constitutional Soul by Harvey C. Mansfield

Focusing on the elections of 1980, 1982, and 1984, Mansfield critiques contemporary conservatism for its ignorance of the political theory implicit in the Constitution.


Harvey C. Mansfield displays his formidable intellectualism and classical scholarship in support of the proposition that the American constitution possesses a formal truth drawn from its foundations and exerted through its development... In what is a provocatively trenchant book, Mansfield takes relish in propelling his readers down the rats
maze of liberal arguments supporting a conservative outlook. Herein lies the real soul of American politics

. * Political Studies * Provides 'food for thought
for both


and in particular for the American citizens about whom this book is concerned

. -- Bradley A. Kletscher * Constitutional Commentary *
