3 The United States Constitution - United States
Auteur : United States
Genre : Politics & Current Events
The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America. The Constitution, originally comprising seven articles, delineates the national frame of government. Its first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government.

12 Our Lost Constitution - Mike Lee
Auteur : Mike Lee
Genre : Political Science
The still-unfolding story of America’s Constitution is a history of heroes and villains—the flawed visionaries who inspired and crafted liberty’s safeguards, and the shortsighted opportunists who defied them. Those stories are known by few today.
In Our Lost Constitution, Senator Mike Lee tells the dramatic, little-known stories behind six of the Constitution’s most indispensible provisions. He shows their rise. He shows their fall. And he makes vividly clear how nearly every abuse of federal power today is rooted in neglect of this Lost Constitution. For example:

   • The Origination Clause says that all bills to raise taxes must originate in the House of Representatives, but contempt for the clause ensured the passage of Obamacare.
   • The Fourth Amendment protects us against unr

22 Alexander Hamilton Biography: The Real Life of the Founding Father and Crafting the US Constitution - Chris Dicker
Auteur : Chris Dicker
Genre : Biographies & Memoirs
Alexander Hamilton was the architect of the US Constitution. He was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States a little more than two centuries ago. Hamilton was one of the public figures, along with George Washington, to craft and enforce the US Constitution, claiming independence from Great Britain.

Hamilton's life is a subject to a lot of debates related to his political career and marriage. His life was quite controversial with its ups and downs. Back in the days, before the United States was claiming independence, people like Hamilton protected their honor with gun duels. Whether someone spread bad rumors about another, they would be challenged to a gun duel to protect their honor and dignity. In fact, Hamilton's son lost his life at a very young age, because of those beliefs. Alexander Hamilton was also a true believer in gun duels to sort out any issues they may h

24 The U.S. Constitution - The Founding Fathers
Auteur : The Founding Fathers
Genre : Politics & Current Events
The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America, and worthy of study. In formation though, the path to adoption was not without dissent: the Anti-Federalist movement was against the creation of a stronger U.S. federal government, and vocally opposed the ratification of the Constitution, because the Articles of Confederation originally gave state governments more authority. Led by Patrick Henry of Virginia, Anti-Federalists worried, among other things, that the position of president might evolve into a monarchy. A selection of Anti-Federalist writings is presented with this edition of the the U.S. Constitution, so that their perspective might be examined in context.

28 The Crisis of the Middle-Class Constitution - Ganesh Sitaraman
Auteur : Ganesh Sitaraman
Genre : Law
In this original, provocative contribution to the debate over economic inequality, Ganesh Sitaraman argues that a strong and sizable middle class is a prerequisite for America’s constitutional system.

A New York Times Notable Book of 2017

 
For most of Western history, Sitaraman argues, constitutional thinkers assumed economic inequality was inevitable and inescapable—and they designed governments to prevent class divisions from spilling over into class warfare. The American Constitution is different. Compared to Europe and the ancient world, America was a society of almost unprecedented economic equality, and the founding generation saw this equality as essential for the preservation of America’s republic. Over the next two centuries, generations of Americans fought to sustain the economic preconditions for our constitutional system. But to

Origins
30 Unruly Americans and the Origins of the Constitution - Woody Holton
Auteur : Woody Holton
Genre : United States
Average Americans Were the True Framers of the Constitution

Woody Holton upends what we think we know of the Constitution's origins by telling the history of the average Americans who challenged the framers of the Constitution and forced on them the revisions that produced the document we now venerate. The framers who gathered in Philadelphia in 1787 were determined to reverse America's post–Revolutionary War slide into democracy. They believed too many middling Americans exercised too much influence over state and national policies. That the framers were only partially successful in curtailing citizen rights is due to the reaction, sometimes violent, of unruly average Americans.

If not to protect civil liberties and the freedom of the people, what motivated the framers? In Unruly Americans and the Origins of the Constitution, Holton provides the

Slavery
32 Slavery's Constitution - David Waldstreicher
Auteur : David Waldstreicher
Genre : United States
Taking on decades of received wisdom, David Waldstreicher has written the first book to recognize slavery's place at the heart of the U.S. Constitution. Famously, the Constitution never mentions slavery. And yet, of its eighty-four clauses, six were directly concerned with slaves and the interests of their owners. Five other clauses had implications for slavery that were considered and debated by the delegates to the 1787 Constitutional Convention and the citizens of the states during ratification. This "peculiar institution" was not a moral blind spot for America's otherwise enlightened framers, nor was it the expression of a mere economic interest. Slavery was as important to the making of the Constitution as the Constitution was to the survival of slavery.

By tracing slavery from before the revolution, through the Constitution's framing, and into the public debate that foll

34 The U.S. Constitution: A Very Short Introduction - David J. Bodenhamer
Auteur : David J. Bodenhamer
Genre : Law
Though the U.S. Constitution was ratified in 1788, its impact on our lives is as recent as today's news. Claims and counterclaims about the constitutionality of governmental actions are a habit of American politics. This document, which its framers designed to limit power, often has made political conflict inevitable. It also has accommodated and legitimized the political and social changes of a vibrant, powerful democratic nation. A product of history's first modern revolution, the Constitution embraced a new formula for government: it restrained power on behalf of liberty, but it also granted power to promote and protect liberty. The U.S. Constitution: A Very Short Introduction explores the major themes that have shaped American constitutional history: federalism, the balance of powers, property, representation, equality, rights, and security. Informed by the latest scholarship, this

Auteur : Pauline Maier
Genre : United States
Together in one book, the two most important documents in United States history form the enduring legacy of America’s Founding Fathers including Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton.

The Declaration of Independence was the promise of a representative government; the Constitution was the fulfillment of that promise.

On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress issued a unanimous declaration: the thirteen North American colonies would be the thirteen United States of America, free and independent of Great Britain. Drafted by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration set forth the terms of a new form of government with the following words: "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness."

37 Who Killed the Constitution? - Thomas E. Woods, Jr. & Kevin R. C. Gutzman
Auteur : Thomas E. Woods, Jr. & Kevin R. C. Gutzman
Genre : Political Science
“Let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”
—Thomas Jefferson

The United States Constitution—the bedrock of our country, the foundation of our federal republic—is . . . dead.

You won’t hear that from the politicians who endlessly pay lip service to the Constitution. It’s the dirty little secret that bestselling authors Thomas E. Woods Jr. and Kevin R. C. Gutzman expose in this provocative new book. The fact is that government officials—Democrats and Republicans, presidents, judges, and congresses alike—long ago rejected the idea that the Constitution possesses a fixed meaning limiting the U.S. government’s power.

In case you’ve forgotten, this idea was not a minor aspect of the Constitution; it was the document’s very purpose.

39 The Evolution of the U.S. Constitution - James Madison, U.S. Congress, Center for Legislative Archives & Helen M. Campbell
Auteur : James Madison, U.S. Congress, Center for Legislative Archives & Helen M. Campbell
Genre : Political Science
James Madison introduced 12 amendments to the First Congress in 1789. Ten of these would go on to become what we now consider to be the Bill of Rights. One was never passed, while another dealing with Congressional salaries was not ratified until 1992, when it became the 27th Amendment. Based on the Virginia Declaration of Rights, the English Bill of Rights, the writings of the Enlightenment, and the rights defined in the Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights contains rights that many today consider to be fundamental to America.
The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. Empowered with the sovereign authority of the people by the framers and the consent of the legislatures of the states, it is the source of all government powers, and also provides important limitations on the government that protect the fundamental rights of United States ci

Subsequently I was greatly honoured when the Universities of Cambridge, Edinburgh and London joined in the invitation.

43 What Is the Constitution? - Patricia Brennan Demuth, Who HQ & Tim Foley
Auteur : Patricia Brennan Demuth, Who HQ & Tim Foley
Genre : History
We the people at Who HQ bring readers the full story--arguments and all--of how the US Constitution came into being.

Signed on September 17, 1787--four years after the American War for Independence--the Constitution laid out the supreme law of the United States of America. Today it's easy for us to take this blueprint of our government for granted. But the Framers--fifty-five men from almost all of the original 13 states--argued fiercely for many months over what ended up being only a four-page document. Here is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the hotly fought issues--those between Northern and Southern States; big states and little ones--and the key players such as James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and George Washington who suffered through countless revisions to make the Constitution happen.

Citizen
45 A Citizen's Guide to the U.S. Constitution; - Frank Schwartz
Auteur : Frank Schwartz
Genre : Law
A primary duty of U.S. citizenship is to be at least familiar with the basic fundamentals of our Constitutional form of government so that one can meaningfully participate in the rights and obligations of American citizenship. As stated by Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, "Our democratic Constitution assumes a public that participates in the government it creates. It also assumes a public that understands how government works." It is the hope and purpose of A Citizen's Guide to the U.S. Constitution: An Introduction to the Essential Nature of the Constitution, to empower its readers to become the kind of active and knowledgeable citizen's envisioned by Justice Breyer.

The book begins with a discussion of pre-Constitutional history, including the Declaration of Independence and the Articles of Confederation, so that the nature of the Constitution, as well as the intent of

Federalist
48 The Federalist - Alexander Hamilton, James Madison & John Jay
Auteur : Alexander Hamilton, James Madison & John Jay
Genre : History
The new charter of government agreed upon in Philadelphia in 1787 faced the daunting challenge of approval by conventions in each of the states. Immediately there arose one of the most bitter controversies in American history, much of it fought in pamphlets and the press. In this verbal barrage, the papers published by “Publius” in New York stood out with special brilliance. Between October 1787 and May 1788, eighty-five articles in defense of the new Constitution soon attracted attention far beyond New York’s borders, for they were clearly the work of a masterful politician. When published later in book form as The Federalist, they were found to be the joint effort of Hamilton, Madison, and Jay. While the papers are frankly campaign documents, and had a questionable impact on the ratification of the Constitution, they were the first and still the most important discussion of the f

50 The U.S. Constitution - Jefferson Thomas
Auteur : Jefferson Thomas
Genre : Political Science
The Constitution of the United States is the supreme law of the United States of America, and worthy of study. In formation though, the path to adoption was not without dissent: the Anti-Federalist movement was against the creation of a stronger U.S. federal government, and vocally opposed the ratification of the Constitution, because the Articles of Confederation originally gave state governments more authority. Led by Patrick Henry of Virginia, Anti-Federalists worried, among other things, that the position of president might evolve into a monarchy. A selection of Anti-Federalist writings is presented with this edition of the the U.S. Constitution, so that their perspective might be examined in context.
