Written for the enlightenment of the average citizen of the Republic and with the avowed purpose of bringing about a better understanding of our Constitution in some of its fundamental aspects, this book presents in simple form and in an interesting manner some of the important current problems of citizenship. Gaspar Bacon has been for years a close student of constitutional law, and is able, because of his detailed acquaintance with the subject, to bring out those essential characteristics of the Constitution that everyone should know. The book embodies the first series of lectures delivered at Boston University on the Bacon Lectureship.
