A companion to the widely acclaimed The Constitution of 1787, this new book by eminent constitutional scholar George Anastaplo examines the nature and effects of the twenty-seven amendments to the U.S. Constitution. For Anastaplo, these amendments implement the equality, liberty, and rule of law principles that are fundamental to the American system of government. His appendixes of critical documents and his reflections on the Bill of Rights and on the Emancipation Proclamation set this volume apart from other treatises on the amendments to the Constitution.Praise for George Anastaplo's The Constitution of 1787:"Those desiring to engage in the enterprise of ' thinking about the Constitution' in the company of a resourceful and knowledgeable guide will find this book quite interesting and enjoyable." -- Judge Edward Dumbauld, Journal of American History"A marvelous instrument for introducing citizens to their Constitution." -- Mortimer J. Adler
