Two salient facts in this must-read guide: the United States Constitution provides the right to amend it by a simple national referendum and the right to take up arms against the government. A remarkably concise, elegant, and elastic document that serves both as the blueprint and the final arbiter of our legal system, the Constitution is at once the most important and most misunderstood dictum in American history.
Key clauses of the Constitution that codify a broad corpus of rights we never hear about, have remained in the shadows for more than two hundred years while the conventionally accepted document has become a plaything of Congress and the courts. The authors effectively demonstrate that "We the People" have the power to interpret, rewrite, and even ignore the Constitution. Every citizen needs to know the full scope of these rights and there is no more accessible source than this book.
For the People is sure to provoke legal debates and seize the attention of readers and commentators across the political spectrum. Most of all, it will return the Constitution to its rightful owners: the people. [via]
