The Complete Bill of Rights

The Drafts, Debates, Sources, and Origins

Second Edition

Neil H. Cogan

  • Provides background material for Bill of Rights in a complete, accurate, and accessible format.
  • Delineates a history of the text from proposal through drafting through adoption.
  • Clause-by-clause layout of textual provisions, debates, and original sources from federal and state archives.
  • Provides original source material without editing or "corrections" by editors at the risk of introducing bias.

New to this Edition:

  • Adds two fundamental protections: habeas corpus and privileges and immunities clauses.
  • Adds important entries as additional sources of interpretation from contemporary legal dictionaries.
  • Expands each chapter with a discussion of rights by treatise and abridgement writers, including Blackstone.
