The Pocket Constitution is a great gift idea for teachers, classrooms, grandchildren, stocking stuffers and more. Even a promotional idea or an incentive in college history classes. How about a nice thoughtful gift for a friend that just got into or recently graduated from law school? Do you have a survival or prepper group or even a relative joining the military? These are all great gift ideas for the pocket declaration of independence and constitution of the United States. Or just have a few around the house for the kids and guests to read?
To encourage people everywhere to better understand and appreciate the principles of government that are set forth in America’s founding documents, the Cato Institute published this pocket edition (3.5" x 5") of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America. With more than five million copies in print, this edition’s influence has been observed far and wide. It has been held up by senators at press conferences and by representatives during floor debate; found in federal judicial chambers across the country; appeared at conferences on constitutionalism in Russia, Iraq, and elsewhere; and sold at bookstores, U.S. Park Service stores, and other outlets nationwide. It includes the Bill of Rights and all of the amendments.

About Cato Institute
The Cato Institute is a nonpartisan public policy research foundation located in Washington, D.C.

To encourage discussion about public policy and the proper role of government, the Cato Institute undertakes an extensive program of publications, conferences, and seminars dealing with a wide range of issues. In addition, Cato scholars appear often as authors and columists and on television and radio programs to discuss issues of the day.
