About the book:

An entertaining and informative look at America's most important historical document, from an award-winning journalist.

Would national identity cards impose on our liberty?

Did the Supreme Court really "choose" George W. Bush as our president?

Do campaign contribution caps infringe on our freedom of speech?

The United States Constitution is the basis for our most fundamental rights as Americans, and is a key element in nearly every major legal and political debate ever argued. But how many of us actually understand the language used by our Founding Fathers?

Now Linda R. Monk, an award-winning author and journalist, takes us through the Constitution, line by line, to help us comprehend this amazing document. From the Preamble, which she analyzes with inspiration from Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Charlton Heston, and James Madison, to each and every amendment, Monk enlightens us by offering insight, legal expertise, surprising facts and trivia, opposing interpretations, and historical anecdotes to breathe life into this provocative and hallowed document.
