Gunfight is a timely work examining America’s four-centuries-long political battle over gun control and the right to bear arms. In this definitive and provocative history, Adam Winkler reveals how guns?not abortion, race, or religion?are at the heart of America’s cultural divide. Using the landmark 2008 case District of Columbia v. Heller?which invalidated a law banning handguns in the nation’s capital?as a springboard, Winkler brilliantly weaves together the dramatic stories of gun-rights advocates and gun-control lobbyists, providing often unexpected insights into the venomous debate that now cleaves our nation. 20 illustrations       Download (623.4 KB) District Of Columbia V.
