The Conversation: Four Myths About the Constitution

James Read, Joseph P. Farry Professor of Political Science at the College of Saint Benedict and Saint John's University has an op-ed column on the Constitution in the Sacramento Bee forum section (Sunday January 23). The title is “Four Myths About the Constitution,” co-authored with Alan Gibson of California State University – Chico, who is a scholar of the political thought of the Founding era. In the column both authors use the new House Republicans’ ceremonial reading of the Constitution to challenge several myths about the Constitution and its history.
