We the People Book Review:

"This work will become the defining text on progressive constitutionalism — a parallel to Thomas Picketty’s contribution but for all who care deeply about constitutional law. Beautifully written and powerfully argued, this is a masterpiece." --Lawrence Lessig, Harvard Law School, and author of Free Culture Worried about what a super conservative majority on the Supreme Court means for the future of civil liberties? From gun control to reproductive health, a conservative court will reshape the lives of all Americans for decades to come. The time to develop and defend a progressive vision of the U.S. Constitution that protects the rights of all people is now. University of California Berkeley Dean and respected legal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky expertly exposes how conservatives are using the Constitution to advance their own agenda that favors business over consumers and employees, and government power over individual rights. But exposure is not enough. Progressives have spent too much of the last forty-five years trying to preserve the legacy of the Warren Court’s most important rulings and reacting to the Republican-dominated Supreme Courts by criticizing their erosion of rights—but have not yet developed a progressive vision for the Constitution itself. Yet, if we just look to the promise of the Preamble—liberty and justice for all—and take seriously its vision, a progressive reading of the Constitution can lead us forward as we continue our fight ensuring democratic rule, effective government, justice, liberty, and equality. Includes the Complete Constitution and Amendments of the United States of America

We The People Book Review:

See the US Constitution in a new light with this bold, modern and accessible illustrated guide to the document that helped define democracy. With the 2020 Presidential election around the corner, there has never been a better time to take a closer look at the Constitution, the bedrock of US politics. Inquisitive minds will have their questions vividly answered – and new ones raised – by a mix of striking illustrations and clear, engaging text, including passages from the Constitution given in plain English. As well as a detailed history covering the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights and all Amendments, discover how this milestone in American democracy shapes and is shaped by the world at large. We The People shows that, far from a fusty old piece of paper, the US Constitution is a living, evolving rulebook that is as relevant today as it has ever been. A fresh take on a monumental document, navigating in style its history and its life today. Excerpts from the Constitution are presented here in plain English to help young thinkers better understand the role it plays in everyday life. Accessible, energetic text accompanied by contemporary, powerful illustrations allows children aged 10 and older to re-think the Constitution in a totally new way. A balanced examination that does not shy away from addressing the difficulties of interpreting and adapting the Constitution for the modern world. We The People takes the Constitution out of its display case, blows off the dust and re-imagines this piece of history for the next generation.

Now in paperback, Lynne Cheney’s New York Times bestselling illustrated history of how the Constitution came to be. “I am mortified beyond expression when I view the clouds which have spread over the brightest morn that ever dawned upon any country.” —George Washington America had won the Revolution, but our troubles were far from over. The thirteen states were squabbling, the country could not pay its bills, and in Massachusetts farmers had taken up arms against the government. Was our country, which had fought so hard for its independence, going to survive? In May 1787 delegates from across the country—including George Washington, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin—gathered in Philadelphia and, meeting over the course of a sweltering summer, created a new framework for governing: the Constitution of the United States. Their efforts turned a shaky alliance of states into a nation that would prosper and grow powerful, drawing its strength for centuries to come from “We the people” and inspiring hope for freedom around the world. Now in paperback for the first time, this richly illustrated tale of a crucial point in our nation’s history will enthrall readers young and old.

We the People Book Review:

We the People offers powerful portraits of communities across the United States that have faced threats from environmentally destructive corporate projects and responded by successfully banning those projects at a local level. We hear the inspiring voices of ordinary citizens and activists practicing a cutting-edge form of organizing developed by the nonprofit law firm, the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF). Their methodology is an answer for the frustrations of untold numbers of activists who have been defeated time and again by corporate political power and legal entitlement. Instead of fighting against what we don’t want, this book can teach us to create from the ground up what we do want, basing our vision in local control and law. By refusing to cooperate with the unjust laws that favor corporate profit over local sustainability, communities can show the way forward, driving their rights into state constitutions and, eventually, into the federal Constitution. In communities from New Hampshire to Oregon, new forms of local organizing have sprung up to fight fracking, mining, dumping of toxic waste, and industrial agriculture, among other environmental assaults. These communities have recognized that the law has “legalized” the damaging actions of corporations, while providing no recourse against harm, and they have therefore decided to create a new system of law that makes local control and sustainability legal. Starting small, this process has spread from rural Pennsylvania to larger cities and towns, and has resulted in the creation of state networks seeking to amend state constitutions. This work is about finishing the American Revolution by giving up the illusion of democracy and forging a system of true self-governance. In addition, this is about recognizing in law, for the first time in history, that nature possesses legally enforceable rights of its own.

We the People Book Review:

Are you concerned about the growing National Debt? Are you unemployed and can't find a job? Do you believe that our government is out of control? Do you feel helpless and don't know what to do to help? If you answered these questions with a YES then you need to look into the principles of this book and get started learning how one person can join up with many others to make changes that will fix these problems. Inside this book are many common sense suggestions about what needs to be looked into in America and what can be done to start making the changes necessary to create more jobs, getting control of the government and reducing the national debt. Learn what others are doing and find out why the Tea Party Movement is the way to get our country back. Gary Barbknecht grew up on a farm in rural Indiana attending school in a small town. His mother was a 4th grade school teacher in the same school in the same building. Parent Teacher Associations (PTA) was the norm in those days so Gary was familiar to both sides of the teaching profession and sat in on meetings pertaining to school materials and issues. After high school, Gary attended college at Purdue University received his bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering in 1965. Gary worked in the electronics industry for 42 years, part of the time as a contractor fabricating military electronics and part of the time as an adviser to the air force in the procurement of aircraft systems. Gary retired in 2007 just as the recession took hold and watched his retirement savings melt to nothing. After 3 years in retirement Gary realized that government needed some supervision and started to get more involved in government activities and started to study civic issues. When not tracking political tomfoolery, Gary enjoys freshwater fishing and grows his own fruits and vegetables as much as possible."

The drills in this book are intended to help your basketball program. Preparing your team to perform at game time is what practice is all about. I have learned that training the team to respond to different situations and adversity during practice will make the team more adaptable and comfortable with the demands placed on them at game time. I have used all the drills in this book during my own practices and they helped not only keep my team motivated during practice but also instilled confidence in their own skills so they were not afraid to push themselves at game time. Confident players are more versatile at game time and can perform the plays that help win the game. As a coach, hearing the words, "I get it, Coach!" is music to my ears. When my players understand how to execute my plays, my drills or the methods I am working during practice it is the greatest feeling. One of the most effective ways to build confident players is to keep your players sharp in the area of fundamentals. Providing a good base of technical skills will pay off at game time. There is a right way and a wrong way to everything and as a coach it is our job to instruct our players how to do things the right way. As a coach, having five fundamentally sound, confident players on the floor is a dream come true. There is no better feeling then coaching a skilled and motivated team to a win. The drills in this book will help you build your team's confidence by practicing and building on their fundamental skills and most of all adding some variety will keep them motivated.

What would you think if you could be thrown in jail for speaking against the government or printing material to which officials objected? If you could be kept in prison until you told your jailers everything that they wanted to know? If people could come into your home at any time and ransack it to their heart's content? If at your trial you weren't allowed to have a lawyer or subpoena witnesses in your defense? Not so long ago, that's the way that it was, and it could be that way again. We the People is about our rights, what they are, and how they got that way. Succinct and in narrative style, We the People addresses its subject at a popular level. Concentration is on three fundamental rights-freedom of expression, the right to privacy, and the principle of fair notice and fair hearing during apprehension and trial.

We the People Book Review:

We the people—these words embody the ethos of what it means to be an American citizen. As individuals we are a tapestry of colors and creeds; united we are a nation committed to preserving our hard-earned freedom. In this heart-stirring collection of watercolor portraits of military veterans—one from each of the fifty states—artist Mary Whyte captures this ethos as well as the dedication, responsibility, and courage it takes to fulfill that promise. Those who raise their hands to serve may join for different reasons, but all—along with their families—make the extraordinary commitment to place the needs of the country before their own. Whyte gives us the opportunity to meet and to see some of them—to really see them. Whyte's portrait of America includes individuals from many walks of life, some still active duty, and from every branch: women and men, old and young, and from a wide swath of ethnicities, befitting our glorious melting pot. From a mayor to an astronaut, from a teacher to a garbage collector, from a business entrepreneur to someone who is homeless, Whyte renders their unique and exceptional lives with great care and gentle brush strokes. We the People is not only a tour across and through these vast United States, it is a tour through the heart and soul, the duty and the commitment of the people who protect not only our Constitution and our country but our very lives. We can only be deeply grateful, inspired, and humbled by all of them.
