As an examination of the original intent of the meaning of the 2nd Amendment, this is a good book. Including citations and references, a thorough analysis of what was implied and intended by this amendment is shown here. It could be a little dry at moments, but there is a lot of material to convey, parsed into periods of history, from Greece to Rome, through English history, and how the understanding of gun rights have changed and been mischaracterized through American history (including the racist origins of gun control in the Civil War and Reconstruction, and during the Civil Rights riots in the 1960s).
