Publisher's Summary

From free speech to fair trials, many of your rights as an American are guaranteed by the first 10 amendments to the United States Constitution. Known as the Bill of Rights, this enduring document - along with its interpretation - continues to inspire debate and shape our lives.

But if you’re like most Americans, you haven’t had a chance to explore the Constitution and its fascinating history since you were a teenager. Now, The Bill of Rights: Understanding the Constitution and Your Freedoms offers you an engaging and accessible refresher led by a legal scholar and expert on the Bill of Rights.

Under the guidance of award-winning Professor David L. Hudson, Jr., you’ll begin by examining the historic development of the Bill of Rights. Then you’ll turn your attention to the freedoms found in its pages. Throughout the course, Prof. Hudson uses contemporary examples to help you grasp the meaning and implications of your individual liberties.

In 19 lectures, you’ll explore the deeper meaning of those liberties. Some of the most famous include freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and the right to keep and bear arms. Others you may be less familiar with include freedom of assembly, freedom to petition the government for a redress of grievances, freedom from double jeopardy, and the right to a grand jury.

Don’t just know your rights. For an enjoyable, memorable, and illuminating discussion of what Madison once called “the Great Rights of Mankind”, look no further.

Excellent Dive into Your Rights

Hudson expertly described each of the Bill of Rights like a skilled surgeon wielding his blade. He investigated each Amendment and case law that aided in its involvement through history. The final 10 minutes of the lecture were probably the best because Hudson's voice really came alive with what he apparently is extremely passionate about. Such advocation for justice is just one of the reasons that Hudson's narration of his writing makes this such a good choice for anyone seeking clarity or knowledge about liberties afforded a U.S. Citizen

Innacurate representation

innacurate representation of amendments. First chapter good but very liberal approach federalistic approach and interpretation. Do not recommend.
