Geoffrey Miller discusses two new books

Photo of Geoffrey MillerGeoffrey Miller, Stuyvesant P. Comfort Professor of Law, published two books this year on very different topics. He edited The Economics of Ancient Law, an 800-page complation of articles—including four written by Miller—that explores the relationship between economics and law in ancient societies. Miller also co-authored The Origins of the Necessary and Proper Clause, which traces the lineage of one of the most important provisions of the Constitution. To learn how a section of Exodus may symbolize constitutional allocation of war powers, or why the U.S. Constitution is really a kind of corporate charter, listen to the podcast.
