The Heritage Guide to the Constitution, Second Edition: What Has Changed Over the Last Decade and What Is Ahead?

"The Constitution," pledged George Washington, "is the guide which I will never abandon." Can we say the same today?The Heritage Guide to the Constitution, first released in 2005, brings together more than one hundred of the nation’s best legal experts to provide line-by-line examination of the complete Constitution and its contemporary meaning. The Heritage Guide to the Constitution, Second Edition takes into account a decade of Supreme Court decisions and legal scholarship on such issues as gun rights, religious freedom, campaign finance, civil rights, and health care reform. The Founding Fathers’ guiding principles remain unchanged, yet a number of Supreme Court decisions over the last decade are a reminder that those principles require a constant and spirited defense. Our panel of experts will discuss what challenges and threats to the Constitution have emerged in the last 10 years since The Heritage Guide to the Constitution was first released.
