Overview: An insightful, urgent, and perennially relevant handbook that lays out in common sense language how the United States Constitution works, and how its protections are eroding before our eyes-essential reading for anyone who wants to understand and parse the constantly breaking news about the backbone of American government.

The Constitution is the most significant document in America. But do you fully understand what this valuable document means to you? In How to Read the Constitution and Why Now, legal expert and educator Kimberly Wehle spells out in clear, simple, and common sense terms what is in the Constitution, and most importantly, what it means. In compelling terms, she describes how the Constitution’s protections are eroding-not only in express terms but by virtue of the many legal and social norms that no longer shore up its legitimacy-and why every American needs to heed to this "red flag" moment in our democracy.

What Is the Constitution? by Patricia Brennan Demuth

What Is the Constitution? (What was…) by Patricia Brennan Demuth
Requirements: ePUB Reader, 61MB
Overview: We the people at Who HQ bring readers the full story–arguments and all–of how the US Constitution came into being.
Signed on September 17, 1787–four years after the American War for Independence–the Constitution laid out the supreme law of the United States of America. Today it’s easy for us to take this blueprint of our government for granted. But the Framers–fifty-five men from almost all of the original 13 states–argued fiercely for many months over what ended up being only a four-page document. Here is a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the hotly fought issues–those between Northern and Southern States; big states and little ones–and the key players such as James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and George Washington who suffered through countless revisions to make the Constitution happen.

Clarence Thomas and the Lost Constitution via Myron Magnet

Clarence Thomas and the Lost Constitution via Myron Magnet
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 492 KB
Overview: When Clarence Thomas joined the Supreme Court in 1991, he discovered with dismay that it used to be decoding an overly other Constitution from the only the framers had written-the person who had established a federal executive manned via the folks’s personal elected representatives, charged with protective voters’ inborn rights whilst leaving them unfastened to determine their particular person happiness themselves, of their households, communities, and states.

He discovered that his predecessors at the Court had been complicit in step one of this modification, when within the 1870s they defanged the Civil War amendments supposed to provide complete citizenship to his fellow black Americans. In the following technology, Woodrow Wilson, disregarding the framers and their paintings as out of date, got down to exchange rules made via the folks’s representatives with regulations made via extremely trained, fashionable, supposedly nonpartisan "professionals," an concept Franklin Roosevelt supersized within the New Deal companies that he stated had no constitutional warrant. Then, beneath Chief Justice Earl Warren within the 1950s and 1960s, the Nine set about knowing Wilson’s dream of a Supreme Court sitting as an everlasting constitutional conference, conjuring up rules out of smoke and mirrors and justifying them as expressions of the spirit of the age.

Overview: When Clarence Thomas joined the Supreme Court in 1991, he discovered with dismay that it used to be deciphering an overly other Constitution from the single the framers had written-the one who had established a federal govt manned by means of the folks’s personal elected representatives, charged with protective electorate’ inborn rights whilst leaving them loose to determine their particular person happiness themselves, of their households, communities, and states.

He discovered that his predecessors at the Court have been complicit in step one of this change, when within the 1870s they defanged the Civil War amendments supposed to provide complete citizenship to his fellow black Americans. In the following technology, Woodrow Wilson, brushing aside the framers and their paintings as out of date, got down to exchange rules made by means of the folks’s representatives with regulations made by means of extremely skilled, trendy, supposedly nonpartisan "mavens," an concept Franklin Roosevelt supersized within the New Deal businesses that he stated had no constitutional warrant. Then, below Chief Justice Earl Warren within the 1950s and 1960s, the Nine set about understanding Wilson’s dream of a Supreme Court sitting as an everlasting constitutional conference, conjuring up rules out of smoke and mirrors and justifying them as expressions of the spirit of the age.

A People’s Constitution by Rohit De

A People’s Constitution: The Everyday Life of Law in the Indian Republic by Rohit De
Requirements: .PDF reader, 17.5MB
Overview: It has long been contended that the Indian Constitution of 1950, a document in English created by elite consensus, has had little influence on India’s greater population. Drawing upon the previously unexplored records of the Supreme Court of India, A People’s Constitution upends this narrative and shows how the Constitution actually transformed the daily lives of citizens in profound and lasting ways. This remarkable legal process was led by individuals on the margins of society, and Rohit De looks at how drinkers, smugglers, petty vendors, butchers, and prostitutes-all despised minorities-shaped the constitutional culture.
The Constitution came alive in the popular imagination so much that ordinary people attributed meaning to its existence, took recourse to it, and argued with it. Focusing on the use of constitutional remedies by citizens against new state regulations seeking to reshape the society and economy, De illustrates how laws and policies were frequently undone or renegotiated from below using the state’s own procedures. De examines four important cases that set legal precedents: a Parsi journalist’s contestation of new alcohol prohibition laws, Marwari petty traders’ challenge to the system of commodity control, Muslim butchers’ petition against cow protection laws, and sex workers’ battle to protect their right to practice prostitution.
Exploring how the Indian Constitution of 1950 enfranchised the largest population in the world, A People’s Constitution considers the ways that ordinary citizens produced, through litigation, alternative ethical models of citizenship.
