This Essay introduces a Symposium, which responds to Barry Friedman’s important book, The Will of the People, from the perspectives of constitutional theory, American constitutional history, comparative constitutionalism, and law and politics. The introduction briefly describes each of the thirteen contributions, identifies some of the most prominent themes and criticisms that emerged from the papers, and summarizes Professor Friedman’s trenchant response - which focuses on the sort of interdisciplinary endeavor his book represents and offers some suggestions for approaching and evaluating multi-disciplinary work.
