History comes alive in this illustrated guide to the Constitution and all 27 Amendments.The Constitution has been in the news a lot recently. But most of us could probably use a refresher on this founding document of America–you can probably name the first and second amendments, but what about the 11th, or the 22nd? And what does all of that formal political language actually mean for us 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 is covered by “freedom of speech”?– What are “emoluments”?– How exactly does a bill become a law?This book makes understanding your rights easy with clear explanations of the complete text of the U.S. Constitution, as well as all 27 Amendments, alongside 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.
