U.S. Constitution For Beginners

by Steve Bachmann Jorge Diaz

In a combination of witty text and crisp illustrations, U.S. Constitution For Beginners takes a tongue-in-cheek look at America's most critical legal document. Author and lawyer Steve Bachmann has written a text that touches on the document's history beginning all the way in 1215 AD with the Magna Carta. He then traces the events that precipitated its writing, the personalities and motives of the people who created it, and its use and misuses since ratification. Though hotly debated and constantly reinterpreted, the Constitution has survived wars, industrialization, expansion and politicians. U.S. Constitution For Beginners analyses crucial elements of this binding set of principles and ponders the future of the Constitution as well as the role of American citizens.
