About this product
- DescriptionThe only volume of its kind, this book provides diverse readings relevant to the topic of constitutional amendment and change. Beginning with sources that were part of the cultural heritage of America's Founding Fathers, the book proceeds to trace debates over the desirability and frequency of constitutional change and the adequacy of the constitutional amending process from the Revolutionary War period to the present. Included are debates over general principles, texts and discussions of individual amendments, and relevant judicial decisions. Where possible, readings are paired to show rival views; each selection is prefaced by an explanation of the reading's context and significance.
