Probably needs to be read by all Americans every ten years or so. Defines the Bill of Rights as the first ten amendments to the Constitution along with the 14th amendment. The issues we deal with today have always been issues and it's instructive to see how our country has dealt with them through its history.

This is a good beginner’s book on the bill of rights. The book this book is based off is not that hard to read and I think is better, but for starters this is a good book to read.
