520    From the Pulitzer Prize-winning scholar comes a timely 
       history of the constitutional changes that built equality 
       into the nation's foundation and how those guarantees have
       been shaken over time. 
520    The Declaration of Independence announced equality as an 
       American ideal, but it took the Civil War and the 
       subsequent adoption of three consitutional amendments to 
       establish that ideal as American law. The Reconstruction 
       amendments abolished slavery, guaranteed all persons due 
       process and equal protection of the law, and equipped 
       black men with the right to vote. They established the 
       principle of birthright citizenship and guaranteed the 
       privileges and immunities of all citizens. The federal 
       government, not the states, was charged with enforcement, 
       reversing the priority of the original Constitution and 
       the Bill of Rights. In grafting the principle of equality 
       onto the Constitution, these revolutionary changes marked 
       the second founding of the United States. Eric Foner's 
       compact, insightful history traces the arc of these 
       pivotal amendments from their dramatic origins in pre-
       Civil War mass meetings of African-American "colored 
       citizens" and in Republican party politics to their 
       virtual nullification in the late nineteenth century. A 
       series of momentous decisions by the Surpreme Court 
       narrowed the rights guaranteed in the amendments, while 
       the state actively undermined them. The Jim Crow system 
       was the result. Again today there are serious political 
       challenges to birthright citizenship, voting rights, due 
       process, and equal protection of the law. Like all great 
       works of history, this one informs our understanding of 
       the present as well as the past: knowledge and vigilance 
       are always necessary to secure our basic rights. --|cFrom
