H. Jefferson Powell Says Eloquence and Reason "Should Be Widely Read"

H. Jefferson Powell, Duke Law School, and author of Constitutional Conscience: the Moral Dimension of Judicial Decision, has this to say about Eloquence and Reason:

And his new account of the relationship between language and power in political discourse is sure to be controversial and should be widely read.
