Description:

Pocket versions of the Constitution of the United States of America abound, as do multi-volume commentaries, academic histories, and tendentious parsings of various clauses and interpretations. But what if you want both a quick reference and a good read, one that places the document and its clauses into concise context? Yoursquo;re out of luck-until now. Seth Lipsky, founding editor ofThe New York Sun, who has been described in the Boston Globe "a legendary figure in contemporary journalism," has been writing about the Constitution for years. He has put together this guide that cites history and the Founders, case law and current events in more than 300 illuminating annotations. HisCitizenrsquo;s Constitutionserves as a no-nonsense, entertaining, and learned guide to the fundamental questions surrounding the document that governs how we govern our country.
