Michael Austin: Reclaiming The Founding Fathers

From C-Span's program Afterwards: "Professor Austin analyzes dozens of speeches, books and articles by conservative commentators to expose what he calls the "deep historical flaws in their use of America's founding history." He also examines the Founding Fathers' quotes in context to present what he believes is a more accurate picture of their meaning. He discusses his findings with George Washington University Associate Professor of Law, David Fontana."
