The Mythology of American Politics内容简介

For the first time, readers have under one cover a sober, informed examination of these myths.Among the myths subjected to critical examination are the following: 1. The Framers of the Constitution were fundamentalist Christians. Americans at the time of the founding constituted a Christian nation. 2. The Framers were disinterested demigods who wrote a constitution for the ages. 3.

Constitutional constraints on democratic majorities are necessary to prevent tyranny of the majority. 5.
