"Adam Winkler tells the remarkable story of the rag-tag group of libertarian lawyers who challenged nearly a century of lower-court precedent to bring a clear-cut Second Amendment case to the Supreme Court... An engaging and provocative legal drama about the six-year courtroom journey of District of Columbia v Heller and a fascinating survey of the misunderstood history of guns and gun control in America." -- Wall Street Journal "A succinct and fascinating introduction to the legal and historical issues at the heart of the gun debate." -- Eric Arnesen, professor of history at George Washington University and fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars - Chicago Tribune "A potboiler of constitutional interpretation and is both a vital history and an intellectually satisfying, emotionally rewarding tale of a great case." -- Jim Newton - Los Angeles Times
