Gunfight: The Battle Over the Right to
Bear Arms in America

In conversation with Erwin Chemerinsky,
founding dean, U.C. Irvine School of Law

In a provocative and controversial history, Winkler, a constitutional lawyer, disputes that guns—not abortion, race, or religion—are at the heart of America's cultural divide.
