I wanted to let you know about my new book, The Second Amendment: A Biography, published today by Simon & Schuster. It takes a new look at one of the most controversial provisions in the Constitution. It’s the story of America’s enduring debate over the role of government, individual rights, race, and the singular role of the Supreme Court.
Politico Magazine just published an excerpt, “How the NRA Rewrote the Second Amendment.”
We’re delighted that Publishers Weekly called it “the best narrative of its subject.” Pulitzer Prize-winning historian Joseph J. Ellis wrote, “Waldman’s new book will not make the most zealous NRA advocates happy, but for anyone who wants his or her history of the Second Amendment straight-up, this is the most comprehensive, accessible, and compelling version of the story in print.”
