The Constitution in Jeopardy : An Unprecedented Effort to Rewrite Our Fundamental Law and What We Can Do about It (Hardcover) - image 1 of 1
 The Constitution in Jeopardy:
An Unprecedented Effort to
Rewrite Our Fundamental Law and
What We Can Do About It

Russ Feingold
and Peter Prindiville
Russ Feingold & Peter Prindiville - Isthmus | Madison, Wisconsin

Over the last two decades, a fringe plan to call a convention under the Constitution's amendment mechanism—the nation's first ever—has inched through statehouses. Delegates, like those in Philadelphia two centuries ago, would exercise nearly unlimited authority to draft changes to our fundamental law, potentially altering anything from voting and free speech rights to regulatory and foreign policy powers. Such a watershed moment would present great danger, and for some, great power.

Feingold and Prindiville examine the grave risks inherent in this effort. Though many focus solely on judicial and electoral avenues for change, such an approach is at odds with a cornerstone ideal of the Founding: that the People make constitutional law, directly.
