with Akhil Amar, Ph.D.
Akhil Reed Amar, a Founders & Us presenter in 2019, explores some of the biggest questions about the American Revolution and Founding era: Why did Americans break away from Britain in 1776? Why did the Articles of Confederation fail? How democratic was the U.S. Constitution in its historical context? Did it truly create an indivisible union? Was James Madison really the father of the Constitution? Amar is Sterling Professor of Law and Political Science at Yale University.
