520    "The history of firearm use and possession is a topic of 
       considerable contemporary debate. Yet, what do we actually
       know about firearms in the Anglo-American tradition? How 
       is the history of firearms taught and remembered? In 
       recent years historians and legal scholars have examined 
       different threads of the densely interwoven relationships 
       between firearms and American culture and society. This 
       history stretches back to 14th-century England and 
       includes locations as diverse as Puritan Massachusetts and
       19th-century Dodge City. Rather than assume a static, 
       unchanging relationship to firearms, historians and legal 
       scholars have shown that this history has been closely 
       related to the broader processes of social change that 
       transformed American society from an early modern pre-
       industrial culture governed by a powerful monarch to a 
       multi-cultural industrial democracy. The book addresses 
       aspects of the current state of historical scholarship on 
       firearms; offers a rare, bipartisan view of the 
       significant breadth of the current state of historical 
       scholarship on firearms history; and includes views of 
       legal practitioners with divergent interpretations of the 
       current meaning of the Second Amendment."--Provided by
