Overview

America won its freedoms through revolution, but that was not enough to ensure them for posterity. Our founding fathers recognized the importance of articulating those freedoms in words that could be put in print to guide the policies of the fledgling nation and speak to generations of Americans to come. The United States Constitution and Other American Documents collects five essential documents that form the foundation of our democracy and express the spirit of America. This volume includes the full text of the Constitution and its Amendments as well the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation. Included as well is the full text of Common Sense, Thomas Paine’s incendiary pamphlet that advocated independence as the only remedy to hostilities between the American colonies and the British monarchy. The five immortal documents gathered in this beautifully designed volume are timeless embodiments of America’s democratic ideals.

    The United States Constitution we though we knew

    Most Americans can name a few of the Bill of Rights and maybe even parts of the preamble. But to actually read the Constitution without narration, to glimpse into the minds of the founding fathers is quit remarkable. Some say today that the Constitution is "out dated". This living document argues differently. It breaths life into our daily lives and must continue live on in the minds of free people every where. Our current administration who would rather wipe their feet on the threads of our civilization should take the time to re-read the Constitution, especially in light that they refuse to read the very bills they vote on.

    Fascinating! This unabridged edition gives you a true glimpse in

    Fascinating! This unabridged edition gives you a true glimpse into the minds of the builders of America, yet it also shows how far away have we gone from the dreams the Founding Fathers had.

    I bought it for the common sense...

    of the Thomas Paine variety. The other stuff of the constitution is clearly not common sense these days. It should be by now though.

    Handy if you just want to refresh your self on what our country is all about

    This book is small enough to take with you. Has the Constitution in it, the Articles of Confederation, and Thomas Paine's Common Sense. Something I think everyone should read in High school anyway.
    you can find this book on the bargain table too I got it for $4.00. So do youself a favor pick it up and read it.
