The books listed below discuss the U.S. Constitution and how its meaning has developed over the last two centuries. The text of the U.S. Constitution (including the amendments) are part of the United States Code Annotated (USCA). A print copy of the USCA is available at the Mack Library (Bethlehem campus); it may also be read online by going to the Westlaw database. The annotations include references to court cases that have changed how the Constitution has been interpreted, and how the law is applied.
The first 10 amendments to the U.S. Constitution are known, collectively, as the Bill of Rights. To read a list of these amendments, visit the National Archives website.
