A More or Less Perfect Union explores the most contentious issues in American history and today through the lens of the U.S. Constitution. The groundbreaking, three-part public television series tells the story of how the Framers put freedom in writing; how amendment after amendment finally spread freedom to all of “we the people”; and how we still struggle today to preserve the freedoms guaranteed in the Constitution.
Our guide is Douglas H. Ginsburg – a national authority on the Constitution, with 30 years of experience on the federal court of appeals in Washington. Throughout the series, experts of all stripes – conservative, progressive and libertarian – debate key issues of liberty: freedom of religion and press, slavery, civil rights, the 2nd amendment, separation of powers, and more.
Voices of Our Republic is an inspiring coffee table book that serves as a companion to the three-part 2020 PBS series A More or Less Perfect Union, A Personal Exploration by Judge Douglas Ginsburg, which delves into the past, present and future struggles for liberty through the lens of the US Constitution.
