“Colonists, Citizens, Constitutions: Creating the American Republic.” By James Hrdlicka; Foreword by Ruth Bader Ginsburg. ISBN:  978-1-78551-207-0. Copyright 2020. Hardcover 208 pages.

Foreword by Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

 Colonists, Citizens, Constitutions highlight documents that tell the story of American constitutionalism from the founding era through to the turn of the 20th century. Accompanying a major exhibition at the New-York Historical Society and the Museum of the American Revolution, the book features federal and state constitutional materials – including a rare, privately owned copy of the original 1787 United States Constitution – that offer essential windows into the history of the United States. Weaving both well-known and less familiar documents into a compelling narrative, the accessible text reveals how Americans have exercised their constitutional powers to shape their communities and why democracy remains an ongoing process.

Accompanies the exhibition Colonists, Citizens, Constitutions: Creating the American Republic at the New-York Historical Society from 28 February to 31 May 2020 and the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia from 12 June to 5 July 2020.
