The Gilder Lehrman Institute’s weekly program Book Breaks features the most exciting history scholars in America discussing their books with guest host Lois MacMillan live, followed by a Q&A with home audiences.
Join us online on Sunday, November 6 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. ET (11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PT) with Steven A. Steinbach and Maeva Marcus as they discuss their book With Liberty and Justice for All? The Constitution in the Classroom.
With Liberty and Justice for All? The Constitution in the Classroom is designed to help teachers and students generate analysis and debate about an aspect of US history that has produced intense disagreements about rights and wrongs: constitutional history. For more than two centuries, Americans have argued about what the US Constitution permits or requires (or not), and what values and ideals it enshrines (or not)—indeed, who is to be included (or not) in the very definition of “We the People.”
Steven A. Steinbach serves as chair of the History Department at Sidwell Friends School, Washington, DC. Prior to arriving at Sidwell Friends, Steinbach spent twenty-five years as a partner and associate at Williams & Connolly LLP.
Maeva Marcus is the director of the Institute for Constitutional Studies and a research professor of law at George Washington University Law School.
