The Bonnie and Richard Reiss Lecture in Constitutional History and Law

Featuring: Richard Brookhiser, Trevor W. Morrison

Details: The Founders were a band of brothers. But like many brothers, they sometimes fought among themselves—for position, for ideas, for glory. Join Richard Brookhiser, celebrated historian of the Founding, and constitutional law expert Trevor W. Morrison as they discuss how Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, Aaron Burr, and John Marshall struggled to define the new republic they had made.

Richard Brookhiser is the author of James Madison and numerous other books on the Founders and their legacy. Trevor W. Morrison (moderator) is Dean and Eric M. and Laurie B. Roth Professor of Law at NYU School of Law.
