Liberty and Equality for Whom? How to Think Inclusively about the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.
Belz, Herman
History Teacher, v25 n3 p263-77 May 1992
Considers who was intended to have civil rights under the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights. Suggests that broad and inclusive historical analysis reveals individual citizens as the intended beneficiaries. Argues that the founders established a constitutional framework flexible enough to function in the transition from patriarchy and hierarchy to modern liberal democracy. (DK)
