The Bill of Rights: The First Ten Amendments to the Constitution

Overview

David L. Hudson Jr.’s The Bill of Rights: The First Ten Amendments provides a succinct and incisive overview of how this central document in American history came about, and how it protects our basic freedoms. 

Our key liberties as American citizens include freedom of speech, freedom of religion, the right to bear arms, freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, and the right to a fair trial. These freedoms come into play every day of our lives. Students, teachers and ordinary citizens will find a readable, interesting and well-researched exploration of the Bill of Rights – and what our lives would be like without it.

Equally fascinating is Professor Hudson’s account in this updated edition of the origin and development of the Bill of Rights in the crucible of Revolutionary American history.
