An entertaining and informative look at America's most important historical document, from an award-winning journalist. Would national identity cards impose on our liberty? Did the Supreme Court really "choose" George W. Bush as our president? Do campaign contribution caps infringe on our freedom of speech? The United States Constitution is the basis for our most fundamental rights as Americans, and is a key element in nearly every major legal and political debate An entertaining and informative look at America's most important historical document, from an award-winning journalist. Would national identity cards impose on our liberty? Did the Supreme Court really "choose" George W. Bush as our president? Do campaign contribution caps infringe on our freedom of speech? The United States Constitution is the basis for our most fundamental rights as Americans, and is a key element in nearly every major legal and political debate ever argued. But how many of us actually understand the language used by our Founding Fathers? Now Linda R. Monk, an award-winning author and journalist, takes us through the Constitution, line by line, to help us comprehend this amazing document. From the Preamble, which she analyzes with inspiration from Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Charlton Heston, and James Madison, to each and every amendment, Monk enlightens us by offering insight, legal expertise, surprising facts and trivia, opposing interpretations, and historical anecdotes to breathe life into this provocative and hallowed document. Linda R. Monk received the American Bar Association's Silver Gavel Award twice, once for her book The Bill of Rights: A User's Guide and again for her work on the documentary Profiles of Freedom: A Living Bill of Rights. She is a frequent contributor to newspapers nationwide. She lives in the Washington, D.C. area. Books, History~~General, Words-We-Live-by~~Linda-R-Monk, , , , , , , , , , Hachette Books

-- Did the Supreme Court really "choose" George W. Bush? -- Is capital punishment in opposition to the Fifth, Eighth, and Fourteenth Amendments, or do they actually make a case for it? -- Do campaign contribution caps infringe on freedom of speech? -- Why didn't Thomas Jefferson or John Adams sign the Constitution, and why did the oldest signer, Benjamin Franklin, sign it with tears streaming down his face? The U.S. Constitution forms the basis of our most fundamental rights. It is also a key element in nearly every major legal and political debate ever argued. Now an award-winning author and journalist brings insight, legal expertise, and humor to her examination of this hallowed document. Linda Monk takes readers for an enlightening stroll through the Constitution. From the Preamble, which she analyzes with inspiration from Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Charlton Heston, and James Madison, to each and every amendment, Monk brings to light the depth and breadth of the Constitution's language as well as the many interpretations that have been argued throughout history. Through entertaining and informative annotations, The Words We Live By provides enough surprises, facts, and illustrations to prove that your Constitution is a provocative as well as a personal document.
