Authors Russ Feingold and Peter Prindiville—in a conversation with Marquette Law School’s Mike Gousha—will visit Eckstein Hall for the national debut of their new book, The Constitution in Jeopardy: An Unprecedented Effort to Rewrite Our Fundamental Law and What We Can Do About It. The book examines the history and meaning of the U.S. Constitution’s amendment procedure and what the authors regard as fringe efforts to call the first-ever constitutional convention under its provisions and as the need for reform that provides for more frequent, democratic constitutional change. The Constitution in Jeopardy is intended to offer both a warning and a way forward and is written for a broad audience of engaged citizens.
