Description

The Bill of Rights is the collective name for the first ten amendments to the United States Constitution. Proposed to assuage the fears of Anti-Federalists who had opposed Constitutional ratification, these amendments guarantee a number of personal freedoms, limit the government's power in judicial and other proceedings, and reserve some powers to the states and the public. Originally the amendments applied only to the federal government, however, most were subsequently applied to the government of each state by way of the Fourteenth Amendment, through a process known as incorporation.

    This book is one of my favourite reads. I love the 1st and 5th chapters. Terrible character development however.

    This is a necessary read for all Americans. To know your rights is power, to neglect to know them is to be doomed to tyranny.
  • Best collection of words ever

    I couldn't think of any other work, with the exception of the Declaration of Independence, that could rival this insanely good read.
