Dr. Andrew Arnold has attempted within 170 pages to give a concise summary of the U.S Constitution, its history, and how many of the decisions and interpretations of the past are still very much with us today. The author does not attempt to lay out any political agenda or biased interpretation of the document that is the very core of American jurisprudence. Instead he has successfully contextualized each article and amendment of the U.S. Constitution in light of the original Constitutional Convention, and historical evolution of interpretations right up to the modern era.
This is an excellent resource for those wanting to get a broad overview of this complex but vital piece of the United States. It also makes a good gift to students studying American history.
