  • Constitutional Amendments: Beyond the Bill of Rights covers the history and current understanding of the amendments. Each volume begins with the amendment text (accompanied by a student-friendly translation). Chapters put the amendment in historical context, examine how it has been tested in the courts, and present current controversies and debates. Reflecting provisions in both the national and state curriculum standards, these volumes provide primary and secondary sources that examine the roots of Constitutional democracy as well as how the interpretation of the Constitution has evolved throughout American history.
