    A great refresher and handy reference

    Maier does a great job of providing context for our founding documents. The book serves as a handy reference which deserves to be reread many times to remind us of the simple, basic but profound principles upon which our country was founded. Principles surrounding concepts such as the separation of church and state, individual freedom and equality, the context for bearing arms and others are often forgotten or misrepresented. Referring to the original is made easy in this pocket sized reference.

    Indispensable

    Every American should own a copy of the Declaration and a copy of the Constitution, especially in times like these when our freedom and self-government are endangered. This edition is especially valuable because, at a low price, it also offers background behind the creation of these important documents. The background information is a bit colored by Maier's opinions (for example, the highly questionable opinion that the Declaration is stronger without Jefferson's reference to the presence of slavery in the colonies), but it is still a good read.

    A Must Have for any Literary Collection

    The Declaration of Independence and The United States Constitution are the two most important documents in American history, and two of the most significant documents in human history. Expressing fundamental principles of governance and human rights, these two documents belong in everyone's personal library. Representing a unique combination of idealism and pragmatism, the genius behind these two works cannot be overestimated. They are testimony to the power of well-conceived ideas to be the real shapers of human destiny.

    Quick reference and small enough to carry with me.

    It is pocket sized and good for easy reference. I use it in conjunction with "The Heritage Guide to the Constitution" which has easy to understand commentaries.
