This guide helps readers understand, quickly and in witty, nontechnical language, our nation's most important founding document, the US Constitution. Historian Andrew Arnold provides a simple, non-partisan, line-by-line commentary with concise explanations of the Constitution's meaning and history, offering little known facts and anecdotes about all twenty-seven amendments, and discusses key Supreme Court cases through the ages. For ease of use Arnold follows the actual numbering system of articles, sections, and clauses in the Constitution. The book includes two tables of contents--one brief and one detailed--as well as a bibliography and a short conclusion by Arnold on the enduring significance of the Constitution. This is a 200 page hardcover book, 0.63 inches high by 8 inches long by 5 inches wide (0.77 lbs).
