Synopsis from Goodreads:
The “living” document that changed the world.
One of the most revered, imitated, and controversial government documents in the world, the U.S. Constitution serves as the foundation for the American government and shapes the lives of Americans every day. But how many know its history and the impact it’s had on American laws and practices throughout history? This guide serves as the most current and accessible handbook to this all-important document.
As with all Complete Idiot's Guide books, I thought this one did a very good job of explaining it's topic in a way that everyone can understand it. This book covers the entire Constitution and explains all of it in a way that makes it easy to understand. Since the American government is a democracy, it relies on its citizens understanding how it works, and one of the most fundamental things every American needs to understand is the Constitution. This books discusses things every American should know in a very easy to understand way. I would recommend this book to everyone.
