The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. Something all citizens of the country should fully know and understand.

So THIS is what everybody's been misinterpreting!

Every person in the United States should read this book. From the so-called "slavery provisions" that raise the uncomfortable question of whether the Constitution was a compromise with the practice and what that means, to the Bill of Rights, whose listing and phrasing have yielded vastly different interpretations of the extent of our liberties, at least at a federal level, this document is a primary source of our political discourse and discord.

Absolutely unbiased, clear cut book. Not a lot of filler.

Bought this edition to replace a pocket edition I'd been given years earlier that I could no longer locate. It's always a fascinating document to read. This book contains not only the Constitution but also the Articles of Confederation and the Declaration of Independence. There is a dandy section on the Supreme Court, including some of the best known Supreme Court cases. It's a handy reference item that everyone should have.

A most excellent annotated overview of the U.S. constitution: perhaps the most important American document ever created. Includes raw annotated text, notes on historical context, as well as interesting relevant tidbits regarding the men and women that contributed to it.

Overview: 5 of 5.
Recommended to: Americans of all ages and statuses.

The book is essential for interpreting the headlines in the media these days. Ben Franklin said, "Our Constitution is an actual operation." Read it straight through and be amazed at how current it all is, how graceful the language is, how extraordinary and generous the vision of the Founding Fathers.

This little book will be very handy in the classroom. It is very informational and absolutely filled with facts on the "Founding Fathers", signers of the Constitution, landmark cases in Supreme Court history, a glossary to name a few! It is a MUST HAVE for every intermediate classroom and above!
Karen
Every American should have a copy of the pocket size book with the entire text of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence. There are lost of interesting facts about our most importing documents along with the Founding Fathers and Supreme Court.

Everyone in America should own and read a copy of the Constitution. This little book also has a lot of other information about the founding of the U.S. and is pretty interesting.
Matthew
The key document in the creation of our Nation and Government. Every American citizen should read the constitution and decide what it means.
Christopher Dalla
I didn't like the views of the people who were involved with the writing of the constitution. Rocky 2 is the worst movie in the series
