Overview

The Constitution is both the guarantee of our rights and freedoms and the framework that enables all people to contribute to the political and economic activities of the country. American's feel strongly that everyone should be familiar with the Constitution. Through a simple presentation focused on basic principles "The People's Guide" is written to make it easy to explore this thrilling document and come to one's own understanding. It includes a brief historical context, definitions of essential terms and concepts for the Declaration of Independence, Constitution, Bill of Rights and Amendments all in one simple spin-free read. What would it be like to live in a country where everyone had read and understood the Constitution? By survey, people believe there would be more respect, it would be easier to get along and make things better-and they would like to read the Constitution, if it was more accessible. The People's Guide to the United States Constitution answers that need.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Enid Portnoy
In a direct and engaging introduction, Kluge explains his motivation for writing this guide. The book consists of the basic rules of people desiring freedom and the guarantee to protect their rights and responsibilities. Kluge refers to the Constitution as the rules of the game. He wants readers to understand how to interpret their rights and how to exercise them. Using very brief chapters, Kluge interprets the key phrases, ideas and events which were the stimulus for the development of this great document. A timeline adds to readers' comprehension. Different type settings separate the actual document wording from definitions provided, for the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution and its amendments. The book is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to learn about the value Americans place on freedom and the rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Ideas and historical events leading to the publication of the Constitution are described, and a summary of the amendments is provided. The last section of the book is devoted to "Applying the Constitution." The work of the Supreme Court is explained, as well as how amendments are added to the Constitution. Several Supreme Court cases are used as examples. Kluge is the former Vice President of Legal Affairs for an international software company, an author, and a speaker. He invites readers to share the knowledge gleaned from this book with others. His clear and lively writing style is easy to read, and the book an excellent reference in the classroom and at home. An appendix, a glossary, a bibliography and an index are also included. Reviewer: Enid Portnoy

    Informative Information

    If your not sure about the Constitution, and what each one means, this is the book for you. It was written in language to where it is easy to understand. I needed some information for a book I'm writing, and it had to be correct information. I found it in this book.
