Cassandra's Review- Laced with raunchy humor and bad language this book has mostly quotes taken from other people and placed in the book. There is nothing like reading this outloud and coming to a word or phrase that would not be polite for anyones children to endure, so make sure your not gifting to a minor. As for adult humor, I did not find it so attractive in the groupings either and found most of them to be gathered in poor taste.
The Handbook for Americans, Revised Edition is an essential reference guide for every American to the United States and its tradition of freedoms and responsibilities.Now, more than ever, Americans are faced with economic, environmental and philosophical challenges that require a strong response. When we ask ourselves, "What does it mean to be an American? What do we stand for?" we are in fact casting about for the resources and traditions to enable us to meet today's challenges.
The Handbook for Americans, Revised Edition features the foundational documents of our democracy--The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and The Bill of Rights--and provides information every American citizen should know about how our government works and the balance of powers set forth by the Nation's founders. An overview of key moments in America's history, including the long march toward equal rights, provides inspiration and a valuable historical perspective.
The Handbook for Americans is a comprehensive resource of the traditions, customs, and facts every American should know about their country. The Handbook for Americans is a sourcebook for citizens as we embark into the 21st Century. It is a guide, and a comfort, for the times ahead and the challenges it may bring. It can help us to understand where we are going, by mapping out where we've been.
Cassandra's Review- If you would like a refresher course on American freedoms and responsibilities or you were asleep during this in school. The book is jam packed with everything you need to know. It can be either really informative or super boring depending on who is reading it and what the need is for them doing so.
I recevied complimentary copies.
