Bills, Quills and Stills: An Annotated, Illustrated, and Illuminated History of the Bill of Rights
At a time when much of the national debate regards the basic rights guaranteed by the Bill of Rights, it's vital to understand exactly what that means: what did the Framers know? Lawyer and scholar Robert J. McWhirter's monumental history of the Bill of Rights traces the origins of the amendments over the span of nearly a thousand years, with many tangents into the history of literature, religion, film, sports and popular culture, and ensures that his fellow citizens will be well-armed to defend their rights. A tour de force of legal scholarship, historical perspective, and cultural allusion, this book belongs on the bookshelf of every citizen, history buff, and lawyer. RKV-76b.BillsQuills
