Library Journal - Library Journal
aims to clarify the roles of the citizen under the U.S. Constitution. He describes relations between citizens and government in terms of Constitutional goals: those that have been attained and those, such as justice and equality, that in his view remain unrealized. Adler philosophically examines the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence, Lincoln's Gettysburg Address, and the Constitution's Preamble. He explores in detail key questions underlying the Constitution along with key words and passages of the text. This highly readable work will help all citizens with their own examination of Constitutional principles. Steven Puro, Political Science Dept., St. Louis Univ.
