Summary

Including a new introduction by eminent civil libertarian and New York Times bestselling author Alan Dershowitz, this edition of the US Constitution is a must-have for all Americans and anyone interested in American history.

This quick, easy reference for our federal government’s structure, powers, and limitations includes:
  • Introduction by Alan Dershowitz (author of the New York Times bestseller The Case Against Impeaching Trump)
  • The Constitution of the United States
  • The Bill of Rights
  • All Amendments to the Constitution
  • The Declaration of Independence

The Constitution of the United States and The Declaration of Independence are two of the most important documents in American history. Conveying the principles on which the country was founded and providing the ideals that still guide American politics today, these are the seminal works from which the foundation of America was built.

Signed by the members of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on September 17, 1787, The Constitution outlines the powers and responsibilities of the three chief branches of the federal government, as well as the basic rights of the citizens of the United States. The Declaration of Independence was crafted by Thomas Jefferson in June of 1776 and it provides the basis of all American political philosophy and civil liberties.

Collected here in one affordable, pocket-sized volume are some of the most valued pieces of writing in American history. Every American, regardless of political affiliation, should own a copy.

Author Biography

Alan Dershowitz is one of the most famous and celebrated lawyers in America. He was the youngest full professor in Harvard Law School history, where he is now the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law, Emeritus. The author of numerous bestselling books, from Chutzpah to The Best Defense to Reversal of Fortune (which was made into an Academy Award-winning film) and to The Case for Israel, Dershowitz has advised and defended many of the most famous legal cases of the past fifty years, including O.J. Simpson, Anatoly Sharansky, Michael Milken, Claus von Bulow, and Mike Tyson. His most recent book, The Case Against Impeaching Trump, is a New York Times bestseller.

The Delegates of the Constitutional Convention, also known as the Founding Fathers, were a collective of fifty-five appointed individuals from the original thirteen colonies who attended the Constitutional Convention sessions, although only thirty-nine actually signed the Constitution. Some of its most notable members are George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, Alexander Hamilton, and Benjamin Franklin.
