Do You Know How the U.S. Constitution Works

to Protect You, Your Friends, and Your Family?

It gives you and every American citizen many rights, including the right to vote, as well as to enjoy freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom to worship--or not worship-- according to your beliefs, to disagree openly with government policy, and to defend yourself in courts of law when accused of crimes or other wrongs.

Open this book to learn more about your rights . . . and also to learn which rights are reserved for the state and the community where you live.

"It's a useful addition to the study of U.S. History and Government."

--School Library Journal
