A Glimpse into America’s Past with Elgin Hushbeck’s Masterpiece, “The United States Constitution: A History”

San Diego, CA – WEBWIRE

Well-known author and historian Elgin Hushbeck has undertaken an audacious journey to simplify the United States Constitution in his new book, “The United States Constitution: A History.” With an innate interest in constitutional studies and driven by the misconceptions that many people have about the Constitution, he has created a comprehensive narrative that explores the complex genesis, development, and interpretation of this supreme law of the land. Inspired by his past writings and encouraged by his publisher, he set out to create this fair and balanced examination of the Constitution.

The book illuminates how our nation’s founding document has been at the heart of numerous political conflicts and controversies. “The United States Constitution: A History” follows the Constitution from its inception at the Constitutional Convention to the present day. Readers can expect a trip through crucial moments in U.S. History, such as the battles over slavery in the 19th century and the influence of the progressive movement in the 20th century. The book also sheds light on the two dominant interpretations of the Constitution: one that sees it as a fixed document and another that perceives it as an evolving one, aligning with the changing landscape of the nation.

With his book, Elgin Hushbeck hopes to provide readers with a deeper understanding of the Constitution and the varied viewpoints surrounding it. He hopes that this understanding will inspire better conversations and less demonization in our divided society. As he eloquently puts it, “Many divisive controversies come from major differences in how people view the Constitution. If we understand the reason for these differences, we can reach a resolution better.” The book also offers a glimmer of hope: despite the ever-growing division within the country, change is possible, and citizens have a significant role to play.

About the Author

Elgin Hushbeck grew up as an “Air Force Brat” as all of his childhood was spent moving every few years, as his dad was reassigned. Born in England, he has lived in: Texas, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, Central California, Ohio, and finally Southern California, where he graduated from High School (after moving his senior year). It was in Southern California, where he met his lovely wife, Hanna and they married in 1975. Shortly after that Mr Hushbeck joined the Air Force and again began to move around, this time moving to Texas, Illinois, and Montana, where his two children were born. After his four years was up, however, Mr Hushbeck decided that enough of his life had been spent moving in the military, and he left go to school. He returned to Southern California in 1980, though he still moved several more times. In 2007, he left Southern California for Wisconsin, and hopes that he does not have to move again.

As an engineer, he has worked for several engineering and technology firms including 5 years at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, where he was part of the Voyager Flight Team for Voyager’s encounter with the Planet Neptune. Since 1999 he and his wife have owned their own company, which designs and develops databases and custom software applications for businesses (his wife Hanna has a Master’s Degree in Applied Computer Science).

Hushbeck has taught at Simon Greenleaf University, and more recently at the University of Phoenix, where for several years he taught, among other things, classes in critical thinking both to students, and to other faculty.
