About this title


The ratification of the American Bill of Rights two hundred years ago represented a shining milestone in the recognition of human rights. No government had ever before made such a fundamental commitment to protect its citizen's civil liberties.Now at risk of being ignored by those in power.

From the Publisher:

" A monumental achievement...a moving document of how far we have come and how much remains to be done in guaranteeing rights." --San Francisco Chronicle
