Using the events of the Constitutional Bicentennial from 1987 to 1991 as a case study, Levin (political science, Boise State U.) explores the contradiction between the Constitution's importance as a political document and its weakness as a symbol in American popular culture. Topics include the problem of an abstract constitution; the conscious creation of constitutional culture; and the constitution in public history, as a symbol of democracy, and in educational policy.
