The Tenth Amendment says that the federal government has a very specific set of powers, which are all clearly laid out in the Constitution. All other powers belong either to the states or individual citizens. The amendment effectively limits the ability of the government to influence people's lives and ensures that certain powers remain with the people. The Tenth Amendment can sometimes be hard to understand, and people often debate what it means. This book explains why this amendment was created, how ideas about states' rights versus federal rights have changed throughout history, and how this ongoing conflict between state and federal government affects your life today.
