America's Constitutional Soul Press Reviews

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 'left' and 'right,' and in particular for the American citizens about whom this book is concerned. -- Bradley A. Kletscher * Constitutional Commentary *
