The establishment clause : religion and the First Amendment by Leonard W Levy( Book )

20 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in English and held by 2,145 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leonard Levy's classic work examines the circumstances that led to the writing of the establishment clause of the First Amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion ..." He argues that the framers of the Constitution intended to prohibit government aid to religion even on an impartial basis. He thus refutes the view of "nonpreferentialists," who interpret the clause as allowing such aid provided that the assistance is not restricted to a preferred church. For this new edition, Levy has added to his original arguments and incorporated much new material, including an analysis of Jefferson's ideas on the relationship between church and state and a discussion of the establishment clause cases brought before the Supreme Court since the book was originally published in 1986

Essays on the making of the Constitution by Leonard W Levy( Book )

29 editions published between 1969 and 1987 in English and held by 1,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nearly two centuries, scholars have argued over the framing of the U.S. Constitution. Were its framers enlightened, disinterested statesmen seeking to rescue a nation drifting toward anarchy, or were they conspiratorial representatives of a rising financial and industrial capitalism? Some believed that the political conflict surrounding the creation of the Constitution was fought between men of nationalist principles and advocates of states' rights; others upheld that it was a clash between an aristocratic elite and the localist forces of democratic majoritarianism. This highly-acclaimed collection of essays, edited by eminent constitutional historian Leonard W. Levy, brings together a wide range of viewpoints on the roles, motivations, and aspirations of the Founding Fathers of the Constitution. With an expanded introduction and a new concluding chapter on the Bill of Rights by the editor, the second edition includes Charles Beard's historic Economic Interpretation of the Constitution, as well as the contemporary scholarship of Forrest McDonald, Robert E. Brown, and John P. Roche, among others. This anthology offers new interpretations of the driving forces of the men who forged the principal document of the American legal system"--Unedited summary from book cover

"The right to a fair trial has been an integral part of American life for centuries. Its central notion is the judgment by an impartial jury of one's peers - a practice so much a part of the American fabric that most Americans do not even question its evolution. How and when this legal custom developed is the subject explored here by one of our most distinguished constitutional scholars. Leonard Levy brings his formidable skills to bear in tracing the development of what many great legal minds have called the "Palladium of Justice.""--Jacket
