Fault Lines in the Constitution

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Cynthia Levinson, Co-Author, Fault Lines in the Constitution Sanford Levinson, Professor of Government; W. St. John Garwood and W. St. John Garwood Jr. Centennial Chair in Law, University of Texas at Austin; Co-Author, Fault Lines in the Constitution
Many of the political issues we struggle with today have their roots in the U.S. Constitution. Cynthia and Sanford Levinson take readers back to the creation of this historic document and discuss how contemporary problems caused by the electoral college, gerrymandering and even the Senate have their origins in an overheated room in 1787. Many of us take these features in our system for granted, but they came about through haggling, and we're still stuck with their ramifications. In this timely and thoughtful exploration of the Constitution's creation, the Levinsons start each chapter with a true story that connects directly back to a section of the document that now forms the basis of our society and government. They also raise important questions about what kind of civic education our children should be receiving.
