History comes alive in this illustrated guide to the Constitution and all 27 Amendments.
Politicians, journalists–maybe even your next door neighbor–seem to be referencing the Constitution more than ever these days. But most of us could probably use a refresher on this founding document of America as we know it. You can probably name the first and second amendments, but what about the 11th, or the 22nd? And what does all of the formal political language actually mean today?
The U.S. Constitution for Everyone answers these questions and more, like: – How does impeachment work, anyway? – How long is a Senator’s term? – What are “emoluments”? – How exactly does a bill become a law?
This book makes understanding your rights easy, connecting the complete text of the U.S. Constitution, as well as all 27 Amendments, with fascinating historical facts and explanations.
A must-read for students, curious citzens, and everyone who’d like to know more about the supreme laws of our nation.
