Abstract:

"As a result of the historic presidential election of 2000, Americans are taking a fresh look at their United States Constitution. In a day when American politics has become a spectator sport often viewed with a cynical eye, The United States Constitution and Citizens' Rights reminds us that our freedom entails a civic responsibility to preserve the legal document that gives us that freedom." "As a contract to which all citizens are parties, the Constitution must be protected from interpretations that unreasonably go beyond the original intent of its Framers. Decisions that extend federal government powers beyond reasonable limits remain topics of contention."

"In this work, Roland Adickes examines instances where Congress and the Supreme Court have extended themselves beyond the Framers' original intent. An analysis of the civic responsibility of the American people toward their Constitution is included."--Jacket.
