The defining document of the United States explained in plain English

The U.S. Constitution and its 27 amendments are the foundation of our government, but this essential document is not very easy to understand. Now, in this entertaining and even-handed guide, constitutional expert Michael Arnheim walks readers through the text, discussing how various articles and amendments have guided legislators and judges, sparked ongoing debates, and continue to affect Americans′ daily lives. He explains all the big issues in plain English from separation of church and state and freedom of speech to search and seizure and civil rights and explains how the Constitution influences current discussions of the Patriot Act, the Electoral College, and voting irregularities.

Dr. Michael Arnheim (London, UK) is a practicing British barrister, mediator, author, and academic. He consults with various U.S. firms on constitutional issues.
