Reviews

A succinct and fascinating introduction to the legal and historical issues at the heart of the gun debate.--Eric Arnesen, professor of history at George Washington University and fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars
In Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to Bear Arms in America, Adam Winkler tells the remarkable story of the rag-tag group of libertarian lawyers who challenged nearly a century of lower-court precedent to bring a clear-cut Second Amendment case to the Supreme Court. This is an engaging and provocative legal drama about the six-year courtroom journey of District of Columbia v Heller and a fascinating survey of the misunderstood history of guns and gun control in America.
