On the Issues: Premiere of new book on the basic charter of American government, Aug. 30

Authors Russ Feingold and Peter Prindiville, in a conversation with Marquette Law School’s Mike Gousha, will visit Eckstein Hall’s Lubar Center for the national debut of their new book, “The Constitution in Jeopardy: An Unprecedented Effort to Rewrite Our Fundamental Law and What We Can Do About It,” on Tuesday, Aug. 30, at 12:15 p.m. 

The event is free and open to the public. Register online by Aug. 22 to attend in person. Space is limited. 

The book examines the history and meaning of the U.S. Constitution’s amendment procedure and what the authors regard as fringe efforts to call the first-ever constitutional convention under its provisions and as the need for reform that provides for more frequent, democratic constitutional change. “The Constitution in Jeopardy” is intended to offer both a warning and a way forward and is written for a broad audience of engaged citizens. 

The Marquette Law School has partnered with Boswell Book Company, which will offer “The Constitution in Jeopardy” for sale at this event. You can also preorder copies online. The authors will be signing copies after the program.
