Magna Carta is a "book"?

Perhaps the Federalist Papers would be a better choice. Or Locke's Two Treatises.


I take your point, since Magna Carta is more truly a "document" than a "book" (as the Declaration of Independence would be a document rather than a book; although our tendency to think of the Constitution similarly as a document is belied by the copies in codex form many of us carry with us). Clearly, the BBC and Bragg are understanding "book" broadly.
