Walter Berns, John M. Olin University Professor emeritus at Georgetown University, investigates the history of modern constitutionalism or limited government. Particularly interested in the framing of the U.S. Constitution, Berns goes on to delve into various views concerning constitutionalism, ranging from Aristotle to Cicero Polybius to Montesquieu, the English Constitution to that of the French. Of course his analysis is not limited to those views just mentioned but rather expands to a plethora of opinions concerning constitutionalism.
