Originalism in American Law and Politics A Constitutional History by Johnathan O’Neill pdf free download. This book examines the originalist conception of constitutional authority and explains why it became a significant component of American political life after World War II. The core originalist idea—that “the intent of the lawgiver is the law”—is rooted in longstanding principles of Anglo-American constitutionalism. While the originalist idea embodies basic commitments from the nation’s founding and the tradition that led to it, the reasons for the reappearance of originalism since the 1960s went beyond those deep roots.

This approach neither reduces law to politics nor denies the influence of politics on the law.

As a history of constitutional thought in its political context, this work addresses a subject now more commonly treated by academic lawyers and political scientists.

It is a pleasure to acknowledge the friends and colleagues who have aided me in the completion of this book. My greatest debt is to Herman Belz, scholar, teacher, and friend. His wisdom, generosity, and example have sustained me in innumerable ways, both professional and personal, and I will always be grateful that I was his student. Gary McDowell provided me with the crucial opportunity, encouragement, and welcoming friendship that enabled my ideas to mature. My understanding of originalism was deepened and clarified by his scholarship on the nature of a written constitution, as well as by his comments on an important early reading of the manuscript. I very much appreciate the interest that Sanford Levinson took in this volume.
