This e-book examines the "constitutional faith" that has, on the grounds that 1788, been a significant element of American "civil religion." by means of taking heavily the parallel among wholehearted recognition of the structure and non secular religion, Sanford Levinson opens up a number of fascinating questions about what it capability to be American. whereas a few view the structure because the important component to an American faith that serves to unite the social order, Levinson continues that its sacred function can lead to clash, fragmentation, or even battle. To Levinson, the Constitution's worth lies within the realm of the discourse it sustains: a uniquely American kind of political rhetoric that permits voters to grapple with each very important public factor imaginable.

In a brand new afterword, Levinson seems to be on the deepening of constitutional worship and attributes the present common frustrations with the govt to the static nature of the structure.
