Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

he United States Constitution is the basis for our most fundamental rights as Americans, and is a key element in nearly every major legal and political debate ever argued. But how many of us actually understand the language used by our Founding Fathers Now Linda R. Monk, an award-winning author and journalist, takes us through the Constitution, line by line, to help us comprehend this amazing document. From the Preamble, which she analyzes with inspiration from Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Charlton Heston, and James Madison, to each and every amendment, Monk offers insight, legal expertise, surprising facts and trivia, opposing interpretations, and historical anecdotes to breathe life into this provocative and hallowed document.

Synopsis:

This authoritative and thought-provoking guide by award-winning writer Linda Monk illuminates the constitution with anecdotes, examples, and a healthy seasoning of lore, trivia, amazing facts, and compelling sidelights as well as references to court cases and clear explanations of legal terms and the evolution of the law. Great Format: A paperback format for this important resource is perfect for law, history and political science fans and students. Popular History Fans Are Legion: The readers of Ambrose, the viewership of the History Channel, Ken Burns fans--these people are book buyers and they number in the hundreds of thousands. Spotlight on the Constitution: The great document is never far from the minds of the press looking for an angle on a popular issue (and with good reason). This book is the source for the upcoming discussions of civil liberties, Supreme Court appointments, and discussions about the electoral college and will continue to be so in paperback format.
