This timely work shows that state drives for a constitutional convention have occurred nearly every twenty years since the Constitution was enacted. The politics of constitutional brinksmanship between Congress and the states is deftly discussed to reveal the ongoing tension between state and federal rights and constitutional tradition and reform.
