Never in history have 1,322 words held out such extraordinary determination to be free as those found in the Declaration of Independence. In 1787, "We the people" were the three words that not only engendered a new and cohesive nation; they went on to change the face of the world as well. In 1791, the first ten Amendments to the Constitution of the United States of America, known to us as the Bill of Rights introduced the world to the concept of those singular rights that ought to belong to every free individual. In one compact volume, the full texts of both the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America with all ratified twenty-seven Amendments to the Constitution are side by side--along with another of America's seminal documents, Thomas Jefferson's Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, an additional world-changing statement that codified for the first time that one cannot be required by law to support or prefer any belief or be punished for those one does profess--and the basis for what we have come to know as the "wall of separation" between church and state. Who we are and what we are free to be as citizens of the United States of America is contained between these covers. Cass R. Sunstein prefaces the volume with a succinct history and interpretation of the place and meaning of both the Declaration and the Constitution in American life. Enhanced by an index and suggestions for further reading, this volume, small in size but overwhelming in the impact of its contents, belongs in the home of every citizen of the United States.… (mere)

There are so many things that I would like to say, about how ground-breaking these papers are, how astute the authors were...but I'll just say that every American should read it. ( )

While the Declaration of Independence of the United States of America was and remains a document of uplifting ideals, those ideals have yet to be fully put into practice. The Constitution, while perhaps a reasonable compromise in the time it was written given the objectives of the men who framed it, is today in sore need up updating, as Thomas Jefferson himself held.

An excellent and attractive compilation of our founders' important and foundational writings. ( )

This is a great copy that has both the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. I believe it is something each U.S. citizen should have in their library for reference purposes. This version is nicely laid out and inexpensive. ( )

Declaration: 

When in the Course of human Events, it becomes necessary for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the Powers of the Earth, the separate and equal Station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent Respect to the Opinions of Mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.
