See the US Constitution in a new light with this bold, modern and accessible illustrated guide to the document that helped define democracy. With the 2020 Presidential election around the corner, there has never been a better time to take a closer look at the Constitution, the bedrock of US politics. Inquisitive minds will have their questions vividly answered – and new ones raised – by a mix of striking illustrations and clear, engaging text, including passages from the Constitution given in plain English. As well as a detailed history covering the original Constitution, the Bill of Rights and all Amendments, discover how this milestone in American democracy shapes and is shaped by the world at large. We The People shows that, far from a fusty old piece of paper, the US Constitution is a living, evolving rulebook that is as relevant today as it has ever been. A fresh take on a monumental document, navigating in style its history and its life today. Excerpts from the Constitution are presented here in plain English to help young thinkers better understand the role it plays in everyday life. Accessible, energetic text accompanied by contemporary, powerful illustrations allows children aged 10 and older to re-think the Constitution in a totally new way. A balanced examination that does not shy away from addressing the difficulties of interpreting and adapting the Constitution for the modern world. We The People takes the Constitution out of its display case, blows off the dust and re-imagines this piece of history for the next generation.

Climate change is real and there are many natural processes that have caused severe changes over millions of years. Fertile land has transformed into deserts; some dry lands today were at one time under water and many places covered by water currently were dry lands. ‘We the People’ are not the cause of climate change but many of our activities are compromising the natural control processes of the Human Environment Systems: energy production and use; agriculture and land use; deforestation, prolific lifestyles that leave large carbon footprints. The pressure is on governments worldwide to mitigate climate change but ‘We the People’ hold the ace: we use most of energy and consume most of the products of agriculture, and our excesses are fueling demand for even more energy; we fund the energy companies through our stocks and share investments and can moderate their excesses; we elect the politicians and can influence their policies; and, through mass actions, we have surmounted governments in many places or forced changes in policies; we have the formidable weapon of the social media to effect change without stepping out. The Climate Change Mitigation Movement is already in motion but ‘We the People’ also need to moderate our choices and lifestyles in order to move the world to carbon neutrality which is a prerequisite for a sustainable environment.
