Layman's Guide to Individual Rights Under the United States Constitution, 4th Edition
Washington, D.C.: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1973. 4th ed. 93rd Congress, 1st session
The Constitution of 1789 has served as the fundamental instrument of our government for almost all of our country's history as an independent nation. Drawn at a time when there were only thirteen original states, dotted with small towns, small farms, and small industry, the Constitution has proved a durable and viable instrument of government despite enormous changes in political, social, and economic environment. From a weak country on the Atlantic seaboard, to a continental nation of fifty states with over 200 million people producing goods and services at a rate thousands of times faster than produced in 1789, the framework for democratic government set out in the Constitution has remained workable and progressive.
