Constitutional Amendments: Beyond the Bill of Rights

Constitutional Amendments:
Beyond the Bill of Rights
New series! Imagine a United States where women and African
Americans are prohibited from voting, where the federal government allows
one human being to enslave another or where some citizens are denied equal
protection under the law.
While many of our most fundamental liberties are protected by the Bill
of Rights, the amendments that followed have significantly broadened
and enhanced the rights of American citizens. Such rights may be taken
for granted today, but when the amendments were ratified, many were
considered groundbreaking and proved to be explosively controversial.
Building on the popularity of its Bill of Rights series (see reverse side),
Greenhaven Press® now extends the coverage with Constitutional
Amendments: Beyond the Bill of Rights.
Delivering clarification and context
Constitutional Amendments:
Beyond the Bill of Rights
1st Ed. 2009
Grade level: 10–12+
Book size: 6” x 9”
Page count: 128–160 per volume
The first six volumes in this continuing series cover such topics as women’s
suffrage, due process and the abolition of slavery. Every volume begins with
the amendment text (accompanied by a reader-friendly translation). Chapters
then put the amendment into historical context, examine how it has been
tested in the courts and present current controversies and debates.
Reflecting provisions in both the national and state curriculum standards,
these volumes provide primary and secondary sources that examine the roots
of America’s constitutional democracy as well as how the interpretation of
the Constitution has evolved throughout American history. Constitutional
Amendments also explores the meaning of citizenship as well as its rights
and responsibilities.
