Weins, Flynn collaborate on Bill of Rights entry for reference works

Friday, January 10, 2014

Two Dakota Wesleyan professors have collaborated on the “Bill of Rights” for a reference book which is now available.

“The Encyclopedia of Criminology and Criminal Justice,” published by Wiley-Blackwell, is now available through Wiley and Wal-Mart online.

Dr. Jesse Weins, assistant professor of criminal justice and dean of the College of Leadership and Public Service, and Dr. Sean Flynn, history professor, co-authored a 5,000-word entry for the reference work on the Bill of Rights, its origins and the legal descriptions of each of the first 10 amendments of the Constitution of the United States.

“The Bill of Rights remains an intricate part of American democracy, both as historical foundation and as contemporary legal instrument,” Weins said. “It was a treat to work with an established historian like Dr. Flynn.”

The encyclopedia, edited by Jay S. Albanese, is available online here and here.
