National Center for Constitutional Studies,
Pub. Date:
For many years in the United States there has been a gradual drifting away from the Founding Fathers original success formula. This has resulted in some of their most unique contributions for a free and prosperous society becoming lost or misunderstood. Therefore, there has been a need to review the history and development of the making of America in order to recapture the brilliant precepts which made Americans the first free people in modern times. The Making of America provides a wealth of material on the Founding Father s intentions when drafting the American Constitution. It is one of the most thorough compilations of statements by the Framers relating to constitutional interpretation. It addresses the Constitution clause by clause and provides resources on the Founder s intent of each clause. The National Center for Constitutional Studies, a nonprofit educational foundation, was created in order to revive and popularize those original American concepts in all of their initial brilliance and vitality. The very fact that many of them are becoming obscure and misunderstood simply emphasizes the urgency and importance of the task. The study for The Making of America actually extended over a period of more than forty years, but an organized effort to present this information in a published text has been a concerted endeavor of nearly fourteen years. It will be observed that many new insights are provided in the writings of the Founders for the solution of serious economic and political problems plaguing the world today. It is felt that a study of The Making of America can be of lasting value to all who have a serious concern for the general welfare of not only America but all mankind.
