MEDIA REVIEWS
"This updated version will work nicely with more general titles on the Constitution, Bill of Rights, and American political history. Recommended for all libraries." - Library Journal
"For scholars, high school and college students, and general readers, Vile presents an encyclopedia of constitutional amendments, proposed amendments by Congress and ordinary citizens, proposed constitutions, and amending issues, from 1789 to 2010. It contains about 525 entries organized alphabetically that are mostly on the 27 ratified amendments, but including successful and unsuccessful proposed amendments by topic, such as abortion, citizenship, powers of Congress, free trade, impeachment, lynching, minimum wages, polygamy, slavery, terrorism, and voting rights." - Reference & Research Book News
"This is a highly recommended title for any collection serving serious researchers and students of the Constitution." - Booklist
"Now in its third edition, this encyclopedia by Vile remains the quintessential work for this subject area-constitutional amendments. . . . Vile has meticulously reduced the redundancies in existing entries, an approach that has resulted in a more focused and ultimately indispensable resource. This extremely user-friendly set, featuring 75-plus new entries, offers an authoritative, insightful perspective on constitutional amendments. Academic and public library collections will benefit greatly by having this work in their collections. . . . Essential. Lower-level undergraduates and above; general readers." - Choice
