U.S. Constitution For Dummies explains what the U.S. Constitution and what its 27 amendments say, what they mean today, and how their meaning has evolved over time as well as current controversies surrounding its interpretation. Familiar phrases that people hear each day are explained in their constitutional context. Current issues such as the Patriot Act, voting irregularities, and the Electoral College are explained and their pros and cons for effective democratic government are discussed. Other topics include separation of church and state, freedom of speech, gun ownership, search and seizure, rights of the accused, conduct of Presidential elections, makeup of the Congress and Supreme Court (and the justice selection process), civil rights, and the amendment process.
