Called "The Poet Laureate of Radio" by critics, Norman Corwin was the top writer at CBS when CBS reigned supreme in radio, and when radio itself dominated public attention. This biography tells the story of Norman's unlikely rise from a triple-decker tenement on Bremen Street in East Boston to the top rung of radio writers during the Golden Age of Radio. A self-taught writer who never graduated from high school, he learned what audiences craved, and he gave it to them. His nuanced "theater of the mind" dramas, tender love stories, and witty comedies were hits talked about long after they were broadcast, and, when his scripts were published, became bestsellers. The week after Pearl Harbor, Norman's show "We Hold These Truths" was broadcast to the largest radio audience ever. His V-E Day broadcast on May 8, 1945, "On a Note of Triumph," made a similarly enduring mark and still constitutes the gold standard for wartime drama.

Corwin on the Constitution

Edward S. Corwin (1878–1963) is widely recognized as the most eminent commentator on the Constitution in our century. Largely because Corwin died before he could write the single definitive work he had planned, the political scientist Richard Loss has spent over a decade compiling and editing a three-volume collection of Corwin's major essays. Loss has chosen twelve essays for the final volume that state Corwin's arguments in political thought and constitutional law. They are responsive to the theme of limitations on governmental power. The editor has organized the essays under the headings "The Limits of Governmental Power over Property and Business," "Governmental Action and Personal and Social Rights," and "A Nation and the States." He has also included Corwin's spirited and previously unpublished address "The New Deal in the Light of American Political and Constitutional Ideas."

Edward S. Corwin's Constitution and What It Means Today

  • Categories: Law

For over seventy-five years Edward S. Corwin's text has been a basic reference in the study of U.S. Constitutional Law. The 14th edition, the first new edition since 1973, brings the volume up to date through 1977. In this classic work, historian Edward Corwin presented the text of the U.S. Constitution along with his own commentary on its articles, sections, clauses, and amendments. Corwin was a renowned authority on constitutional law and jurisprudence, and was hired at Princeton University by Woodrow Wilson in 1905. Far from being an impersonal textbook, Corwin's edition was full of opinion. Not afraid to express his own strong views of the development of American law, Corwin offered piqu...
