America's Founding Documents by Thomas Jefferson,Alexander Hamilton,John Jay,James Madison Summary

Soon after the start of the American Revolutionary War in 1775, the Thirteen Colonies proclaimed their independence from British rule and became the United States of America. The written word proved vital in shaping America's new identity, laying the groundwork for societal principles and political doctrine alike. From Thomas Jefferson and the members of the Second Continental Congress, to Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay, the authors of these documents had a profound and lasting effect on United States history. This collection includes unabridged versions of five famous and influential documents that helped to found a nation: the Declaration of Independence (1776), the Articles of Confederation (1777), the United States Constitution (1787), the Federalist Papers (1787–1788), and the Bill of Rights (1791).

The Declaration of Independence and The Constitution of the United States by N.A Summary

Together in one book, the two most important documents in United States history form the enduring legacy of America’s Founding Fathers including Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and Alexander Hamilton. The Declaration of Independence was the promise of a representative government; the Constitution was the fulfillment of that promise. On July 4, 1776, the Second Continental Congress issued a unanimous declaration: the thirteen North American colonies would be the thirteen United States of America, free and independent of Great Britain. Drafted by Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration set forth the terms of a new form of government with the following words: "We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness." Framed in 1787 and in effect since March 1789, the Constitution of the United States of America fulfilled the promise of the Declaration by establishing a republican form of government with separate executive, legislative, and judicial branches. The first ten amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, became part of the Constitution on December 15, 1791. Among the rights guaranteed by these amendments are freedom of speech, freedom of the press, freedom of religion, and the right to trial by jury. Written so that it could be adapted to endure for years to come, the Constitution has been amended only seventeen times since 1791 and has lasted longer than any other written form of government.

La Conjuration des imbéciles by John Kennedy TOOLE Summary

Par ce seul livre posthume, John Kennedy Toole gagna une place à part, et une des premières, dans la littérature américaine contemporaine : il reçut le prix Pulitzer en 1981 pour ce roman tumultueux - gargantuesque tragicomédie située dans l'ambiance grouillante des bas quartiers de La Nouvelle-Orléans. Lors de sa publication en France, la même année, l'accueil fut tout aussi enthousiaste, et ce roman-phénomène fit écrire à Jean Clémentin, dans Le Canard enchaîné, les lignes suivantes, toujours d'actualité : " Un ouvrage de génie comme il n'en paraît pas beaucoup par siècle... Il faudrait des colonnes entières pour détailler les cruautés, les trouvailles, la verve épicolyrique, la puissance de cet ouvrage. Cette audace, son auteur l'a payée au prix fort : déprimé de ne pas trouver d'éditeur, il s'est suicidé en 1969, à trente et un ans. Onze ans après, sa mère, remuant ciel et terre, réussit à trouver une minuscule maison d'édition, en Louisiane... Alors seulement les " grands " éditeurs et l'establishment intellectuel américain le découvrirent et s'en emparèrent, lui donnant, pour faire bonne mesure, le plus grand prix littéraire des États-Unis et ajoutant ainsi, par leur aveuglement premier et leur emballement final, un chapitre très significatif, une démonstration en quelque sorte, à La Conjuration des imbéciles.
