From the Publisher's Website: A well-rounded social studies education is grounded in an understanding of how the Constitution-the blueprint for a democratic society-works. Each volume begins with the amendment text (accompanied by a student-friendly translation). Chapters put the amendment in historical context, examine how it has been tested in the courts and presents current controversies and debates. Reflecting provisions in both the national and state curriculum standards, these volumes provide primary and secondary sources that examine the roots of constitutional democracy as well as how the interpretation of the Constitution has evolved throughout American history. The series also explores the meaning of citizenship as well as its rights and responsibilities.
