It's a pity this book will end up in the hands of kids who don't know any better...
Deb M
A US history book that can't even get the text of the bill of rights down correctly, can't properly be called a history book can it?
ViscousMF
This is a high school AP History text book and it can't even get the Bill of Rights correct?

Format: Paperback
This book gives a breif synopsis onf our bill of rights. This is quoting how they explain the 2nd ammendment. "The people have a right to bare arms in a state militia."
This goes against every supreme court decision on the meaning of the second ammendment. As the first line of the 2nd is actually a preamble. Popular in writings of that time. This book has very little real history inside. Its mostly just a progessive indoctrination peice...

Format: Paperback
At the very least, the bill of rights is completely revised, so if you read this, as your source of information, you have no idea what the ORIGINAL Bill of Rights states.

Is this an accident? Probably not. Have you read 1984?

That this kind of book is allowed to be published is a crime. The author is a traitor to the Constitution.

It's a shame Amazon even sells this book and that I was forced to even give it 1 star! In this book, on page 102, the definition provided for the Second Amendment is incorrect and seems to be suggesting that only members of a State Militia are allowed to keep and bear arms.

Format: Paperback
This is not the history of our country. This book is all about pushing an agenda to CHANGE our country. How can an "educational" book not be able to get our constitution correct? They are obviously misquoting the 2nd Amendment for a reason. This book is about America but it takes a play right out of any book published by the USSR!.

Format: Paperback
"A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

How in the hell do you turn the founding fathers' well-crafted declaration of a people free to protect themselves from ANY tyrannical government to this ideological claptrap:

"The people have the right to keep and bear arms in a state militia".

WRONG, Mr. History Professor. And if this is our Government's view of AP History, WRONG AGAIN. Guess I'd better get ready to homeschool...

Format: Paperback
That is what the title should be. A good number of students seem to love this book, but I'm not surprised. It's written at an 8th grade level or lower so that this generation of American's can read it without taking a SPED class.

The next edition will probably wipe out the Constitution of the US entirely and replace it with Alinsky's Rules for Radicals. I imagine the progressive college professors are giddy with excitement knowing that their agenda is sanctified by the Dept of Ed and spoon fed to young, impressionable minds.

This book is not factual. It is obviously written by a leftist with his distorted views and opinions concerning the US Constitution.

This book completely revises the whole bill of rights, most notably the second amendment. It's propaganda and it should be removed from amazon asap.
