Volume 3, Publisher description: The Civil Rights Revolution carries Bruce Ackerman's sweeping reinterpretation of constitutional history into the era beginning with Brown v. Board of Education. From Rosa Parks's courageous defiance, to Martin Luther King's resounding cadences in "I Have a Dream," to Lyndon Johnson's leadership of Congress, to the Supreme Court's decisions redefining the meaning of equality, the movement to end racial discrimination decisively changed our understanding of the Constitution. Ackerman anchors his discussion in the landmark statutes of the 1960s: the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and the Fair Housing Act of 1968. Challenging conventional legal analysis and arguing instead that constitutional politics won the day, he describes the complex interactions among branches of government--and also between government and the ordinary people who participated in the struggle. He showcases leaders such as Everett Dirksen, Hubert Humphrey, and Richard Nixon who insisted on real change, not just formal equality, for blacks and other minorities. The Civil Rights Revolution transformed the Constitution, but not through judicial activism or Article V amendments. The breakthrough was the passage of laws that ended the institutionalized humiliations of Jim Crow and ensured equal rights at work, in schools, and in the voting booth. This legislation gained congressional approval only because of the mobilized support of the American people--and their principles deserve a central place in the nation's history. Ackerman's arguments are especially important at a time when the Roberts Court is actively undermining major achievements of America' Second Reconstruction.

Now in paperback, Lynne Cheney’s New York Times bestselling illustrated history of how the Constitution came to be. “I am mortified beyond expression when I view the clouds which have spread over the brightest morn that ever dawned upon any country.” —George Washington America had won the Revolution, but our troubles were far from over. The thirteen states were squabbling, the country could not pay its bills, and in Massachusetts farmers had taken up arms against the government. Was our country, which had fought so hard for its independence, going to survive? In May 1787 delegates from across the country—including George Washington, James Madison, and Benjamin Franklin—gathered in Philadelphia and, meeting over the course of a sweltering summer, created a new framework for governing: the Constitution of the United States. Their efforts turned a shaky alliance of states into a nation that would prosper and grow powerful, drawing its strength for centuries to come from “We the people” and inspiring hope for freedom around the world. Now in paperback for the first time, this richly illustrated tale of a crucial point in our nation’s history will enthrall readers young and old.

WE THE PEOPLE, is the product of a fine team of 18 distinguished authors who live in four different countries of the world; Nigeria, the United States of America, Britain and France. Nigerians at home and in the diaspora, women and men, young and old, Christians and Muslims, from many professional backgrounds and every geo-political zone in Nigeria, participated in writing this book; therefore, the central message and truths documented in this book is not the opinion of one man, but is the collective wisdom and opinion of WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. Nigeria has suffered enough setbacks and abuse as a nation from bad leaders. Nigerians as a people have suffered enough deprivation, social injustice, government-induced poverty, insecurity, lawlessness and disrespect through bad and corrupt leadership. The government and people of Nigeria have a Constitution, for the purpose of promoting the good governance and welfare of all persons in our country, on the principles of freedom, equality and justice, and for the purpose of consolidating the unity of our people. Every Nigerian president swears an oath to uphold, defend and implement the Constitution of Nigeria, the highest law in the Federal Republic of Nigeria, but every Nigerian president has violated directives of the Nigerian Constitution on how to treat WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. Everybody blames leadership for the deplorable state of Nigeria. There is no question that years of bad leadership has inflicted great injuries on the nation. However, those bad leaders were elected into office by bad Nigerians who voted along tribal and religious lines, or on the basis of who gave them the most money to vote for them. WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria are therefore largely responsible for all the problems in Nigeria. But the problems with WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria goes much more beyond the reckless mistakes they make when they vote bad people into office as their leaders. Most present day WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria are corrupt, lawless, unpatriotic, prejudiced along tribal and religious lines, selfish and self-centered. These vices are a great burden to the nation. This book has been written to educate WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. Through education and dissemination of the facts we will change the mindset and create a new breed of WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. The WE THE PEOPLE movement, is the only hope of salvation and transformation for Nigeria. Individual repentance from corruption, lawlessness, reckless behavior, and prejudice along tribal and religious lines is the beginning of salvation and transformation for Nigeria. We need a new breed of WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria. Eventually, we shall attain the critical mass required to clean up Nigeria from bottom to top. Only a clean bottom can create a clean top. The WE THE PEOPLE movement seeks to grow a new breed of WE THE PEOPLE of Nigeria that cuts across tribal, religious, and political inclinations; men and women of all ages and economic status who will commit to doing the right things in their daily lives, free from corrupt tendencies. Eventually, a clean bottom will lead to a clean top, as WE THE PEOPLE use the power of our votes to select clean men and women of integrity for leadership positions nationwide, as we take back our country from corrupt politicians and leaders who abuse WE THE PEOPLE. Additional Details are provided, including how to become a member of the WE THE PEOPLE movement. We have registered a non-governmental organization (NGO), "THE PEOPLE'S GRASSROOTS ASSOCIATION FOR A CORRUPTION-FREE NIGERIA." Our goal is to raise 50 million united Nigerians of every tribe and religion, men and women, young and old, from every ward, every local government, every state, every geo-political zone of Nigeria through a potent nationwide movement that will include proper and careful exercise of our voting rights to elect honest, decent, intellectuals with integrity as leaders and legislatures for a new and transformed Nigeria of our dreams.
