Ronald Rotunda Reviews 'The Once and Future King'
Michael Ramsey

Ronald D. Rotunda (Chapman University, The Dale E. Fowler School of Law) has posted a book review (65 Journal of Legal Education 434 (2015)) of Frank Buckley's The Once and Future King: The Rise of Crown Government in America (Encounter Books, 2014) on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:  

If you want to understand your own language, learn a foreign tongue. Similarly, if you want to understand the American system of government, learn what our intellectual kin — Great Britain and Canada — have done. As Professor F.H. Buckley notes, "He who knows only his own country knows little enough of that." He is one of the few people who has thoroughly mastered the legal structure and history of all three countries.
