US Constitution Becomes Best-Seller After Democratic Convention Speech

Last week the Democratic National Convention was held in Philadelphia, a city with a history as rich as one can get in the U.S., as one of the nation's capitals in the Revolutionary War and a meeting place for the Founding Fathers of the United States, who signed the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the Constitution in 1787.

It was in this city that the Constitution again drew attention, after Muslim-American lawyer Khizr Khan, whose son was killed while serving in Iraq, gave a speech criticizing the Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, accusing Trump of not knowing the Constitution and offering him his own copy of the Constitution to read.

Just within a few days, the Constitution reached the Top 10 best-selling books on Amazon, showing the power of national television - as if most viewers had not heard of the Constitution before.

If you didn't buy your own copy of the Constitution yet, or if you want to offer a nice hardcover copy to your friends and family, then we are happy to present Cosimo's The Constitution of the United States and Other Historical American Documents, which includes in one volume the three founding documents of the United States and another that altered and divided the Union for a brief moment in history: The Declaration of Independence, The Articles of Confederation, The Constitution, and The Constitution of the Confederate States, created after the attempt to secede from the Union. Together, these four documents offer a firsthand perspective on the political history of the United States and are a great gift for anyone who wants to have those American founding documents at hand - whether it's to fact-check during the upcoming Presidential debates or just to kniw what the Constitution has to say.

Cosimo offers this volume in hardcover, paperback and ebook.
