Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Pat Trattles
Starting with a discussion of the article in the San Francisco Chronicle, which broke the story of steroid use in Major League Baseball, this book provides readers with in-depth coverage of the first amendment to the U.S. Constitution and how it has impacted history from its beginnings through the modern day. Part of the "Constitution of the United States" series from MyReportLinks.com and Enslow Publishing, this thorough treatment looks at the origins and various components of the amendment, devotes separate chapters to separation of Church and State and Freedom of Speech, and finally looks at how the Constitution is a "living" document, constantly evolving and subject to interpretation by the courts. Intended as a research tool this book includes a timeline, glossary, index, bibliography, and extensive source notes, as well as an in-depth discussion about how to use the report links available at myreportlinks.com. Further research on the Internet is an integral part of the presentation, and throughout the book, readers will find "approved website" logos, with photographs of the home pages of the websites featured, as well as a quick note stating what information can be found at that particular website. The text of the constitution is also presented in its entirety. Although marketed toward middle and high school audiences, the text is hard to follow in places, especially when using the legal language contained in court decisions, and may be incomprehensible to middle school students. It would be a good addition to the high school government curriculum. Reviewer: Pat Trattles
