Our leaders swear to uphold it our military to defend it It is the blueprint for the shape and function of government itself and what defines Americans as Americans But how many of us truly know our Constitution The United States Constitution A Graphic Adaptation uses the art of illustrated storytelling to breathe life into our nation s cornerstone principles Simply put it is the most enjoyable and groundbreaking way to read the governing document of the United States Spirited and visually witty it roves article by article amendment by amendment to get at the meaning background and enduring relevance of the law of the land What revolutionary ideas made the Constitution s authors dare to cast off centuries of rule by kings and queens Why do we have an electoral college rather than a popular vote for president and vice president How did a document that once sanctioned slavery denied voting rights to women and turned a blind eye to state governments running roughshod over the liberties of minorities transform into a bulwark of protection for all The United States Constitution answers all of these questions Sure to surprise challenge and provoke it is hands down the most memorable introduction to America s founding document
