Gutzman at Locke Headliner Luncheon

Kavin Gutzman wrote The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Constitution to show there is very little relationship between the Constitution as ratified by the thirteen original states more than two centuries ago and the “constitutional law” imposed upon us since then.

He’ll be in Raleigh, NC next Tuesday, Jan. 22, as the John Locke Foundation’s Headliner luncheon speaker. You can get details about the luncheon here.

From the JLF site:

Gutzman is associate professor of American history at Western Connecticut State University. He received his Master of Public Affairs from the University of Texas, his J.D. from the University of Texas School of Law, and his M.A. and Ph.D. in American history from the University of Virginia.

Dr. Gutzman is the author of Virginia’s American Revolution: From Dominion to Republic, 1776–1840 and was a featured expert in the documentary film John Marshall: Citizen, Statesman, and Jurist. He has written scores of articles and encyclopedia entries, as well as reviews of books, films, and exhibitions for magazines academic and popular.
