520    "Weapons have been a source of political and legal debate 
       for centuries. Aristotle considered the possession of arms
       a fundamental source of political power and wrote that 
       tyrants "mistrust the people and deprive them of their 
       arms." Today ownership of weapons -- whether handguns or 
       military-grade assault weapons -- poses more acute legal 
       problems than ever before. In this volume, the editors' 
       introduction traces the history of gun control in the 
       United States, arguing that until the 1980s courts upheld 
       reasonable gun control measures. The contributors confront
       urgent questions, among them the usefulness of history as 
       a guide in ongoing struggles over gun regulation, the 
       changing meaning of the Second Amendment, the perspective 
       of law enforcement on guns and gun control law, and 
       individual and relational perspectives on gun rights"--
       Publisher's description.
