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...
***WARNING: DON'T BUY THIS BOOK! It contains so called "history" that is inaccurate and untrue. Please ask that Amazon remove it.***
Amazon needs to remove this untrue, offensive, revisionist tripe from it's inventory. The authors are deliberately misinforming, i.e., LYING TO, the readers who will be unfortunate enough to be dumbed down by this carefully contrived piece of propaganda.
On page 102 there is a "summary" of the Bill of Rights. It is not a summary but a list of the alleged first ten amendments and the text is NOT ACCURATE. This is not the United States Constitution Bill of Rights but a wish list by the authors of what they would prefer if they could overturn the Bill of Rights. Here is a photo of page 102:
And, here, is the ACTUAL text of the REAL Bill of Rights:
A most deliberate re-writing of the actual amendments text. One needs to question who the authors are and why they are attempting to dis-inform their readers. What is the agenda here? A close examination of what the authors have substituted in place of the authentic text should alarm all students of history and anyone who values their rights.
The title of this book is "United States History: Preparing for the Advanced Placement Examination". This is neither history nor suitable for any "advanced" placement in anything but ignorance. Even worse, this is being passed off as COLLEGE LEVEL.
The disinfo contained in this book is no accident and the agenda is sinister. There are anti American, anti constitution forces at work in this country and you're looking at the product of two of their minions.
I am requesting that Amazon immediately remove this item and stop offering it for sale.
In an attempt at being succinct, this textbook has changed the meaning of the Bill of Rights. I have to admit that I have not read any other part of this textbook or any of AMSCO's other products, but if they revise this portion of this book than I would not trust any of their other products.
I would give this book less than one star if I could!
Any book that is said to prepare students for an AP class should at least be truthful.
Paraphasing the Constitution in accordance with leftist thinking not only does to our children wrong, but shames the memory of the founding fathers who wrote the orginal document. This is a play straight out of 1984!
Do not waste a penny on this book, and if your child's school requires it, fight them with whatever power you have to change.
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.
