The Blessings of Liberty : A Concise History of the Constitution of the United States, Paperback / softback Book

The Blessings of Liberty : A Concise History of the Constitution of the United States Paperback / softback

Description

From the first drafts of the Constitution to the latest debates in the Supreme Court, Michael Les Benedict presents a concise analysis of the U.

S. Constitution's development in a supremely accessible format.

It uses Constitutional developments as a timeline for the social and political context of America from colonial through contemporary times, and provides necessary background for anyone seeking to know how today's government evolved.

The Second Edition adds reflection on such recent events as presidential impeachment and post-9/11 heightened security measures, while continually tracing the tenuous relationships of the Constitution to the president, the courts, the legislature, and the people of America.
