The US Constitution – A Very Short Introduction

Main Article Content

The Oxford University Press began its very short introduction series in 1995 and now, two decades into the 2000s, comprises some 500 volumes translated into more than forty-five different languages, covering ‘everything from Psychology and Philosophy of Science to American History and Relativity’. The aim of the series, says Oxford University Press, is to provide ‘a stimulating and accessible way into a new subject’ for readers unfamiliar with the topic. David Bodenhamer’s The US Constitution – A Very Short Introduction fulfils this aim, yet does far more than this and its title may imply.
