Description

Unlike most constitutional law books, this book does not assume that the students have any particular knowledge of American history, government, or law, so it begins with a rich introductory chapter to provide students with a necessary foundation for the rest of the material. Thereafter, it supplements the familiar cases with historical context and pictures and biographies of current and famous justices adjacent to their opinions. It makes the traditional canon accessible and enjoyable to the current generation. Easily covered over two semesters, the book manages through careful case selection to avoid drastic editing of all but the longest cases.
