"The Short Constitution" is one of a series of volumes entitled "Elementary Americanism", intended for use in the home, the club, the school, and in general Americanization work. It is our hope that regular courses in "Americanism" will soon be established in all schools, colleges, and universities. We use the term "Americanism" because we feel that it signifies something broader, deeper, and more appealing than any title now used in the schools in the teaching of American government, or citizenship, or the rights and duties of the citizens of the United States. We like the term "America" better than "the United States". "The United States" suggests boundaries, codes, and constitutions. "America" suggests all these and then it suggests spirit. There is such a thing as "Americanism". It includes all there is of information relating to our country; but it also has a soul "Americanism" relates to democracy, into which enter all the ideals, all the impulses and emotions of men, women, and children. "Americanism" teaches not only the relation of the States to the National government, and the relation of citizens to both the State and the National government, but it also teaches the relation of men, women, and children to each other.
