Summary

Summary

The first ten amendments to the U.S. Constitution were written to prevent the federal government from passing laws that violate basic human rights. Originally regarded by most as an unnecessary safeguard, they have been a great influence on American law and politics over the past two centuries. This anthology will include primary source material on the Bill of Rights and the important role it has played in American history.
