Description

The changed title for the second edition of Professor Young’s constitutional law casebook reflects the book’s expanded coverage of individual rights. The new edition retains both the first edition’s historically-sequenced survey of leading cases from Marbury to Casey and its in-depth focus on contemporary doctrine concerning federalism and separation of powers. But it adds lengthy survey chapters on Due Process and Equal Protection, as well as a final chapter integrating both strands of rights doctrine through a case study of gay rights. Introductory material and notes have been updated throughout, and new principal cases include NFIB v. Sebelius, Zivotofsky v. Kerry, and Obergefell v. Hodges. As before, this casebook is designed to facilitate the introductory Constitutional Law courses taught in most law schools, rather than to attempt a comprehensive survey of the subject. The new edition does offer considerably more flexibility, however, in calibrating the balance between structural issues and individual rights.
