One assumes the continuing posts on Belleseiles to this list have to do
with the implications of his book for "original meaning" of the Second
Amendment. Given, however, that a couple of other historians have gotten
in trouble recently--on plagiarism, rather than accuracy of
research/representations to be sure--does this indicate a problem in
history generally that had escaped notice? How are untrained lawyer types
to know whether they can rely on historians' work (the "secondary source"
problem) ? Not to mention of course that histories and interpretations are
contested in any event.
Any advice would be most welcome, off list is fine.
