Professor Edward Larson Interviewed on George Washington -- Amarica's Constitution with Akhil Amar Podcast
Professor Edward J. Larson discusses his book, The Return of George Washington: Uniting the States, 1783-1789, on the Amarica's Constitution with Akhil Amar podcast. Professor Larson is co-teaching a course at Yale Law School with Professor Amar, one of the nation's leading authorities on the Constitution. The podcast offers weekly in-depth discussions on the most urgent and fascinating constitutional issues of our day.
Via Amarica's Constitution with Akhil Amar:
The academic year is underway, and Professor Amar's crazy teaching schedule, as usual, includes co-teaching with some of the greatest constitutional scholars in the nation. This semester Akhil is joined by Professor Edward Larson, whose amazingly wide range includes a PhD in History of Science in addition to his Harvard Law degree. So it is not surprising that as Professor Larson joins us for this episode, our discussion of George Washington ventures into GW the scientist. And speaking of scientists, Ed Larson also wrote a book on GW and Benjamin Franklin - was this an odd couple as it might first seem? We also take another shot at the James Madison vs. GW question while we're at it. Oh, and religion shows up as well.
