The classical liberal constitution :the uncertain quest for limited government

Steering clear of well-worn debates between defenders of originalism and proponents of a living Constitution, the author employs close textual reading, historical analysis, and political and economic theory to urge a return to the classical liberal theory of governance that animated the framers' original text, and to the limited government this theory supports.
