Most Helpful Customer Reviews

29 of 29 people found the following review helpful By Edwin C. Pauzer VINE VOICE on November 21, 2006
Format: Paperback
This book provides you with the constitution, its background and history, important cases, and how they were decided. It also provides an explanation of articles, clauses and sections.

During the recent supreme court nominations there were a number of pundits providing mis- and disinformation regarding the constitution. This book certainly helped clarify what the constitution really meant.

Another word used more freely in the past few years is treason. From book titles to charges, I was able to learn through this book how the founding fathers defined it and why they made it so hard to use.

So,

In order to perform a more perfect knowledge, ensure your intellectual tranquility, and the achieve the security of a perfect argument, I recommend that you exercise your inalienable right to purchase this book, and secure the blessings of life, liberty, and the pursuit of "well-informedness."

This book does a great job of tracing the history of the Constitution through its review by the Supreme Court from its inception through 1986. Would love to see an update
