About this title

Synopsis:

Is modern America misunderstanding the Constitution?
New book is alternative to typical take on calls for change in Washington
TUCSON, ARIZ. - A new book is proposing that Americans may not understand the Constitution
as well as their high school government class grades illustrated - and that it may be due to our
leaders' own interpretation.
In A Charter of Negative Liberties, author C. Howard Diaz brings readers a foundation for renewed
understanding of the Constitution and the intentions of our forefathers compared to perceptions
and actions of today's foremost political leaders. With an in-depth look into the Bill of Rights, the
book provides a context in which original language can be applied to recent political events. An
eye-opening read, A Charter of Negative Liberties aims to provide clarity surrounding the direction
the country is headed, and stresses the political, not moral, importance of these documents.
"Even though our Constitution is the primary cause of American success, it has been under assault
for decades," says Diaz. "The more we distance ourselves from the Constitution, the worse
America's future becomes. Morality and government were never intended to be intertwined; the
Constitution is not a Bible."
As an American of Mexican descent, Diaz offers a unique perspective on both American history
and the country's deviation throughout his 75 years. Upon hearing a 2001 interview with President
Obama in which the president referred to the Constitution as "a charter of negative liberties," Diaz
says that he immediately began writing the book, which he calls "the biggest little book in America."
An all-encompassing read that combines both historical fact and passionate opinion, A Charter of
Negative Liberties brings forth an applicable perspective on our forefathers' original intentions.
"I decided to interpret the Bill of Rights as I, one of the people, read and understand it," says Diaz.
"The ruling class, the elites, the intellectuals and the academics may scoff at my views; but this had
to be written."
A Charter of Negative Liberties
By C. Howard Diaz

From the Author:

I don't think very many Americans actually know how limited a federal government our Forefathers had envisioned when they created our Constitution. Nor do they know the reason The Bill of Rights was written. I my book I try to explain all this in language the average American can understand.
