An inspiring vision that has remained surprisingly durable. ( )

If I were a judge I'd say that Constitution was void for vagueness. But people seem to like it for some reason. All in all, a better plan of government than, say, North Korea. But once the lawyers and the rent-seekers get involved, its just a big old mess. If businesses wrote contracts like this, they'd all go broke. ( )

Easily two of the most important documents ever written in the history of democratic society, with a third one thrown in for good measure. ( )

Originally drafted by the Constitutional Convention in 1787, the Constitution defines the United States of America. This greatest of all American documents not only establishes our system of government, it limits the power of that government, specifying our irrevocable rights and privileges as individuals. The Constitution remains as relevant today as it was over two hundred years ago. Included in this volume are the complete texts of the Constitution of the United States of America and its amendments; the Declaration of Independence; and the Articles of Confederation. The book also includes an insightful introduction by R.B. Bernstein, a chronology of important dates, and an index to the Constitution.… (more)
