There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Apparently, Amazon lumps together the reviews written for various print versions of the US Constitution. All print versions are not equal and many of the Amazon reviews do not apply to the print version I reviewed. The print version I reviewed has a painting of George Washington, quill pen in hand, on the front cover. It is copyrighted by the National Center for Constitutional Studies. Accept no substitutes.
America arguably has the greatest constitution (or similar document) in the world. But if it is to mean anything beyond lofty words, it must be cherished and defended by an informed public.
Call me crazy, but when I buy a "pocket Constitution," that's all I want.
For a buck.
Pretty Nice, indeed!
To those customers who reported their copies had a preface or commentary suggesting how we interpret this document: This edition has neither commentary nor suggested interpretations - just the declaration that it was "... proofed word for word against the original ...".
FYI, the ISBN for this publication is is 978-0-88080-144-7.
I am buying more copies as gifts for children & grandchildren.
Reading the Amendments will give you some idea of their rights but not a full, detailed explanation. The Framers left out a lot of details on purpose. Because the Constitution is very un-detailed in spots, we have to rely on Courts' interpretations of the Constitution to know what are rights are (and what government actors' powers and limits are).
The Constitution is a good starting point, but you'll need to do research to find out the current state of certain rights. If privacy rights interest you, for example, you could do an online search on U.S. Constitution + privacy rights.
I should know, but don't. Thank you Amazon for the generous one dollar offer. It is worth much more.
