The person on the cover of this book is George Washington, not Thomas Jefferson. Jefferson looked NOTHING like that! Nor did Madison, Adams or Hamilton! Note the characteristic set of the jaw....
As to the suggestion that the Amazon description implies that Jefferson composed the Constitution: as I understand the language, they are saying that when Jefferson was President - he caused (produced) copies of the Constitution to be made available, in something like this format.
This is fine little booklet at a great price. And while I like the looks and size of the classic little red CATO Institute book, this one is actually much easier to open and to read. It has better page margins and slightly larger type. And it's also slightly thinner for slipping into a pocket.
EDITED: I have received this booklet now and I have scoured it from cover to cover. THERE IS NO CONTENT OR COMMENT BY SKOUSEN IN IT. Not a word. There are a few presidential quotes that are questionable in how they are presented. But the transcript of the documents are perfectly fine. There has to be some other version printed that has the Skousen content, this one sure doesn't have it.
It still pained me to give a buck to this org.
But then they pick and choose a number of religious quotes and insert them into the introduction and other pages of the book. Why? How ironic is it with the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment that they would do this?
I ordered 72 of these to give to people at a party that celebrates the separation of church and state. Had I known that it was full of quotes from Washington and Daniel Webster (?) about God, I would have found another product.
I'm shipping these back and looking for an alternative that holds to the secular nature of our country.
