BOOK EXCERPT:

James Madison introduced 12 amendments to the First Congress in 1789. Ten of these would go on to become what we now consider to be the Bill of Rights. One was never passed, while another dealing with Congressional salaries was not ratified until 1992, when it became the 27th Amendment. Based on the Virginia Declaration of Rights, the English Bill of Rights, the writings of the Enlightenment, and the rights defined in the Magna Carta, the Bill of Rights contains rights that many today consider to be fundamental to America. The Constitution of the United States of America is the supreme law of the United States. Empowered with the sovereign authority of the people by the framers and the consent of the legislatures of the states, it is the source of all government powers, and also provides important limitations on the government that protect the fundamental rights of United States citizens. The Constitution acted like a colossal merger, uniting a group of states with different interests, laws, and cultures. Under America's first national government, the Articles of Confederation, the states acted together only for specific purposes. The Constitution united its citizens as members of a whole, vesting the power of the union in the people. Without it, the American Experiment might have ended as quickly as it had begun.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Although one of the shortest written constitutions in the world, the U.S. Constitution, designed to embody the rights, laws, and guiding principles of a diverse and ever-changing populace, remains an enduring document. Since its ratification in 1787, the Constitution has been applied to a broad range of legal and political questions and, while often the subject of much debate, continues to serve as a stalwart reminder of the country’s social and legal strides. This detailed volume breaks down each section of the Constitution and its amendments, also providing a concise overview of the field of constitutional law as it is applied around the world and in various forms of government.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Women and the U.S. Constitution is about much more than the nineteenth amendment. This provocative volume incorporates law, history, political theory, and philosophy to analyze the U.S. Constitution as a whole in relation to the rights and fate of women. Divided into three parts—History, Interpretation, and Practice—this book views the Constitution as a living document, struggling to free itself from the weight of a two-hundred-year-old past and capable of evolving to include women and their concerns. Feminism lacks both a constitutional theory as well as a clearly defined theory of political legitimacy within the framework of democracy. The scholars included here take significant and crucial steps toward these theories. In addition to constitutional issues such as federalism, gender discrimination, basic rights, privacy, and abortion, Women and the U.S. Constitution explores other issues of central concern to contemporary women—areas that, strictly speaking, are not yet considered a part of constitutional law. Women's traditional labor and its unique character, and women and the welfare state, are two examples of topics treated here from the perspective of their potentially transformative role in the future development of constitutional law.

BOOK EXCERPT:

The Thirteenth Article of the Bill of Rights, amended to the United States Constitution was built upon The Emancipation Proclamation cornerstone, which was a result of the Civil War, and also, paved the road to equality in a positive direction approximately three years later with Article Fourteen. The importance of these historical pivot points in history can be seen in the Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), Georgia in Doe v. Bolton, 410 U.S. 179 (1973), Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. 479 (1965). The words; citizen, person, birth, pregnancy and life, are often referenced and their definitions are vague and broad in regards to when a citizen, person or life is entitled to rights under the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights as read in Roe v. Wade 410 U.S. 113 (1973). These past definitions are open for interpretation due to the current advances in modern science, such as the Human Genome Project and other fields of molecular biology. Compared to the science of facts available in 1973, the opportunity now exist to prove at the molecular level when a citizen becomes a citizen and when that citizen is entitled to their rights under the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
