Sanford Levinson Discusses The Flaws In The US Constitution

Book Cover - Fault Lines in the Constitution

Many of the political issues we struggle with today have their roots in the US Constitution. In the book "Fault Lines in the Constitution: The Framers, Their Fights, and the Flaws that Affect Us Today" Cynthia and Sanford Levinson take readers back to the creation of this historic document and discuss how contemporary problems were first introduced and then they offer possible solutions.

Sanford Levinson joins us. The book was originally released in 2017 but a new edition has been published, adding two new chapters.

Sanford Levinson is an American legal scholar, a professor in the Law School and the Department of Government at the University of Texas, and a frequent visiting professor at Harvard Law School. He holds degrees from Duke, Stanford, and Harvard universities and is the author of several adult books on the Constitution.
