Professor Richard Beeman, one of the most respected constitutional scholars in the nation, has produced what no citizen of the United States should be without: a compact, fully annotated copy of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution and amendments, including the Bill of Rights, all in their entirety. A marvel of accessibility and erudition, the guide also features a history of the making of the Constitution with excerpts from The Federalist Papers and a look at crucial Supreme Court cases that reminds us that the meaning of many of the specific provisions of the Constitution has changed over time. These are the documents that define us as a nation-in a portable format.
