    ITEM#: 2608005

    Updated to include reference to recent Supreme Court cases, this volume explains all seven Articles of the Constitution, its Preamble, and its Amendments. The Constitution is set down in its entirety and explained in detail. Significant Supreme Court decisions are cited to demonstrate how the Constitution has continued to affect the lives and protect the liberties of Americans in the more than two centuries since its ratification. Also presented is discussion of how changes have occurred in Constitutional interpretation under the leadership of the Supreme Court's succeeding chief justices. The book is illustrated, and features a foreword by the Constitutional historian, Henry Steele Commager. Here is an excellent classroom supplement for high school-level social studies courses and introductory college courses.
