"For anyone interested in our Constitution, our history, or our political theory, this book is an intellectual treasure chest. It is more than legislative history. It is constitution-drafting in the raw - all the proposais and ail the give-and-take (some of it disturbing) that resulted in the adoption of the Bill of Rights." Floyd A. Abrams, Partner, Cahill Gordon & Reindel LLP "This wonderful collection offers one-stop shopping for the serious student of the Bill of Rights, for the casual reader, and for everyone in between." Akhil Reed Amar, Sterling Professor of Law, Yale Law School "This book is an invaluable resource for constitutional scholars, teachers, litigators, and judges alike. It collects and collates the basic texts necessary for informed interpretation of the Bill of Rights and gives them to researchers in a compact, comprehensive, and reliable form that is wonderfully organized for both quick scanning and sustained critical analysis. It makes previously difficult research tasks easy and opens new lines of thinking at a glance." Anthony G. Amsterdam, University Professor Emeritus, New York University School of Law "The Complete Bill of Rights is a major occasion in American publishing.... Never before has it been possible to think seriously and completely about the text of the Bill of Rights, for never before have ail of the texts relating to the final version of the Bill of Rights been easily and accurately accessible in one reference work. This is a triumph of careful and thoughtful scholarship. It is now one of the essential components of the library of constitutionalism." Stanley N. Katz, President, American Council of Learned Societies
