Description

This casebook continues to focus upon Supreme Court opinions and other primary documents, offering deep and wide coverage of almost all major areas of constitutional doctrine in a way very few other casebooks do. For decades, the distinctive pedagogical approach reflected in the book – its commitment to providing as much of the raw decisional, statutory and historical background material as is practical – has allowed teachers to structure constitutional law courses as they see fit, and has encouraged students to formulate their own generalizations directly from the materials. The book covers all major traditional constitutional topics, including the role of the federal judiciary, separation of powers, federalism, the non-criminal provisions of the Bill of Rights, and the Reconstruction Amendments.
