9780275945121: A Companion to the United States Constitution and its Amendments

As its title indicates, this text is designed as a companion for those studying and interested in understanding the United States Constitution. After an introductory chapter discussing the formation of the United States, the Declaration of Independence, and the proceedings of the Constitutional Convention, 11 chapters analyze specific portions of the Constitution and its subsequent amendments in detail, with commentary following the relevant texts. Each chapter also contains a bibliography of books and cases useful for further study. Notably, this work provides information on key cases and historical events that are necessary to an understanding of the Constitution without, however, inundating readers with too many individual cases.
