About the Book
This inspiring coffee table book explores the most contentious issues in American history and today through the lens of the US Constitution. “Voices of Our Republic” features thoughts about the Constitution from personalities, dignitaries, and everyday heroes, including Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Arthur Sulzberger, Alan Dershowitz, Sandra Day O’Connor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jack Nicklaus, Ron Chernow, and others. These figures help answer the question of why the Constitution is so important and how it can be applied to political discourse today. Each person emphasizes a different part of the Constitution--from the Bill of Rights to the 14th Amendment and beyond--and why those particular passages are important.
Complete with more than 75 full-color photos, this book makes the perfect gift for every American, regardless of political affiliation. “Voices of Our Republic” serves as a key resource for those looking to better appreciate the foundation of American government and to increase our understanding of its application during its initial creation and still today.
