University of Chicago Press, Chicago and London: 2000. Second Edition. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
A masterly introduction to the United States Constitution, this slim book leads the reader through a concise overview of the document's individual articles and amendments. With clear and accessible language, Currie then examines each of the three branches of the federal government and explains the relation between the federal and state governments.

A sympathetic yet critical guide, Currie's book enables students and laypersons to understand one of the cornerstones of the Western political tradition. The second edition, along with an updated chronology and bibliography, incorporates the Supreme Court decisions over the past decade that have affected constitutional interpretation.

116 DAVIS, DAVID BRION; MINTZ, STEVEN. The Boisterous Sea Of Liberty: A Documentary History Of America From Discovery Through The Civil War.
Oxford University Press, New York/Oxford: 1998. 0195116690 / 9780195116694 h Hardcover with dustjacket. Very good condition. 
In historical writing, there's no substitute for primary sources such as letters and diaries of eyewitnesses and participants. But all too often those sources are handled as minor adjuncts to a text, appearing in truncated form with so little context provided that the immediacy of the material is diluted. The Boisterous Sea of Liberty takes the direct approach of celebrating the primary sources, offering 366 separate documents from colonial times to the Civil War, each presented with a brief yet substantive introduction that provides context as well as entertaining background information about the writers and their subjects. Includes an Index.

119 DE MOHRENSCHILDT, GEORGE; RINELLA, MICHAEL A. (EDITED AND ANNOTATED). Lee Harvey Oswald As I Knew Him.
University Press of Kansas, Lawrence: 2014. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Let us hope that this book, poorly written and disjointed, but sincere, will help to clear up our relationship with our dear, dead friend Lee. Thus concludes a largely forgotten manuscript appended to Volume XII of the House Select Committee on Assassinations. Lee, of course, was Lee Harvey Oswald, the man accused of having assassinated President John F. Kennedy in Dallas on November 22, 1963—and whose closest friend, many have argued, was Dallas resident George de Mohrenschildt. For years following Kennedys assassination there were rumors and assumptions—some started by de Mohrenschildt himself—that this colorful, larger-than-life European migr possessed a key to understanding Oswalds alleged actions. The reflections presented here, recorded between 1969 and his death in 1977, was de Mohrenschildts attempt to recover the humanity of a friend he believed had been demonized as simply an insane killer. In a series of recollections about his brief friendship with Oswald and his wife Marina between the fall of 1962 and the spring of 1963, de Mohrenschildt recalls conversations about Lees time in Minsk, about political issues of the day, particularly Latin America, and the Oswalds turbulent and troubled marriage. He discusses the assassination and its aftermath, including his lengthy 1964 Warren Commission testimony, appearance on NBC television, and concludes with his own speculations about the possibility of a conspiracy to assassinate Kennedy and the question of Oswalds involvement. Threaded throughout are de Mohrenschildts reflections on the corrosive effects of his friendship with the Oswalds on his and his wife Jeannes personal and professional lives, first in 1964 and then echoing right up to the completion of this manuscript in 1976. George de Mohrenschildt was born in 1911 in the present-day Republic of Belarus, and immigrated to the United States in 1938, sixteen years after his family escaped to Poland from the Soviet Union. Fluent in several languages and already well-educated, he received a masters degree in petroleum geology from the University of Texas, Austin, in 1945. In 1952, he moved to Dallas, where he livedwith a few years sojourn in Haitiuntil 1977, when, shortly after learning that a congressional committee investigating the assassinations of the 1960s wanted him to testify, he took his own life. "The title says it all: here we have a testimonial on Oswald, by a primary source, whose friendship with JFK's alleged assassin provides an intimate view of a young man who was very difficult to know . . . a unique and significant new source in a crowded field and one that will be cited frequently. "—John Prados, author of The Family Jewels: The CIA, Secrecy, and Presidential Power "Rinella's efforts are impressive. His engaging introduction and annotations make de Mohrenschildt's intriguing memoir much more readable and comprehensible . . . The book will be widely read. "—Loch K. Johnson, author of America's Secret Power: The CIA in a Democratic Society Deftly edited and annotated by Michael Rinella, whose introduction also supplies critical background information and context, this once unwieldy, grammatically quirky, and eccentrically organized text can now be seen for the valuable biographical, social, and historical document it actually is.
