Description

You may have encountered notions that the country would be better off with a new model futuristic Constitution. Why should we obey ancient scribbles on fragile parchment? Here is why: Seven reasons to cherish the Constitution, based on events from the history of the Republic. Great figures - George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Alexander Hamilton, John Marshall, Aaron Burr, Andrew Jackson, Sam Houston - and numerous common people set in motion an epic of freedom. Their challenges and deeds are the subject of this book. There is no better way to make sense of today's politics than to remind ourselves of past trials and achievements. Review: "A well-timed refresher course on the forces at play in the conception, ratification, and amendment of this revered (and sometimes reviled) document. ... A lucid defense of the Constitution, full of contextual information to supplement and broaden basic knowledge." -Kirkus Reviews
