The Bicentennial of the Jurisprudence of Original Intent: The Recent Past, 77 California Law Review 235 (1989)
The Bicentennial of the Jurisprudence of Original Intent, celebrated
in 1996-less than one decade after the Bicentennial of the Constitution,
launched a tidal wave of litigation. This wave as yet shows no signs of
reaching its crest, let alone receding. An account of the bewildering
events touched off by the so-called "Second Bicentennial" may be of
interest to the readers of this journal, even though this account may
become outdated almost immediately.
