Each chapter in this two-volume reference reprints the text of a constitutional amendment, congressional transcripts of the debate, historical background documents, newspaper articles from different regions, Supreme Court cases, and biographies of individuals who played a significant role in drafting the amendment. Historical snapshots reprinted from the publisher's Working Americans series depict cultural attitudes at the time through significant political and social firsts, quotations, retail prices, a currency conversion chart, and product advertisements. The ten amendments in the Bill of Rights are covered together in the first chapter. Appendices describe the constitutional amendment process and list six amendments that made it through the House or Senate but were not ratified by the states.
