Gerber on the Unavoidably Brief Historiography of the Third Amendment

Scott D. Gerber, Ohio Northern University Pettit College of Law, has posted An Unavoidably Brief Historiography of the Third Amendment, which appeared in the Tennessee Law Review 82 (2015): 627-46.  Professor Gerber explains, “This Article was part of a symposium about the Third Amendment hosted by the Tennessee Law Review. The Article provides a historiography of the existing scholarship about the Third Amendment. As the Article's title indicates, the historiography will be unavoidably brief, which, if nothing else, is a testament to the importance of the symposium. I conclude the Article with a few thoughts of my own about the significance of the Third Amendment for American constitutionalism.”
