A valuable reference to understanding your freedoms.
Many Americans reference the Bill of Rights, a document that represents many of the freedoms that define the United States. Who doesn’t know about the First Amendment’s freedom of religion or Second Amendment’s right to bear arms? In this succinct volume, Akhil Reed Amar and Les Adams offer a wealth of knowledge about the Bill of Rights that goes beyond a basic understanding.The Bill of Rights Primer is an authoritative guide to all American freedoms. Uncluttered and well-organized, this audiobook is perfect for those who want to study up on the Bill of Rights without needing a law degree to do so.
This elementary guidebook presents a short historical survey of the people, events, decrees, legislation, writings, and cultural milestones, in England and the American colonies, that influenced the Founding Fathers as they drafted the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. With helpful comments and fun facts, the book will provide a deeper understanding of the Bill of Rights, exhibiting that it is not a stagnant document but one with an evolving meaning shaped by historical events, such as the American Civil War and Reconstruction.
In this divisive political climate, many are quick to reference the United States' founding documents without fully understanding them or taking into account the context in which they were written. Tim Lundeen's spirited, robust delivery of Akhil Reed Amar and Les Adams' book provides an illuminating and accessible guide to the Bill of Rights: one of the quintessential documents in the history of democracy.
The title may evoke images of a dull high school lecture, but this audiobook is anything but boring. Lundeen's casual, inviting tone captures the listener's attention from the beginning and holds it to the end.

At this length, basic; but at that, great
