The U.S. Constitution--with its message of liberty, the primacy of the will of the people, government accountability, separation of powers, and other democratic principles-continues today to be the model for other nations. This anthology traces the history of the framing of the Constitution in 1787 and discusses the document's important provisions, its amendments, and its legacy for subsequent generations of Americans.
"There's a lot of material packed in here, but the brief annotation and summary of each article will help students decide where they want to start their research or reading. An appendix of primary source documents brings in the voices of the time."
