Description

The Bill of Rights is the collective name for the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. Proposed to assuage the fears of Anti-Federalists who had opposed Constitutional ratification, these amendments guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government's power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public. Originally the amendments applied only to the federal government, however, most were subsequently applied to the government of each state by way of the Fourteenth Amendment, through a process known as incorporation.

    I would've liked it if they would put the legal language, and then reconstructed it so that an everyday person could understand it easier (harder to read legal then everyday).

    This book is one of my favourite reads. I love the 1st and 5th chapters. Terrible character development however.

    It’s great to have these books available at no cost. I am an American Citizen by choice who was born in Enland. This is the first time I have read the Bill of Rights.
