Additional Book Details

This book, in addition to analyzing and including excerpts of court decisions, highlights the efforts of legislatures, executives, the states, and the general public to participate in an ongoing political dialogue about the meaning of the Constitution. It therefore rejects the idea that elected leaders and the public must passively receive and obey a series of unilateral and final judicial commands. The book covers all new developments in case law, congressional statutes, presidential policies, and initiatives undertaken by states under their own constitutions. Included are readings not only from cases but congressional floor debates, committee reports, committee hearings, presidential vetoes and statements, opinions of the Office of Legal Counsel in the Justice Department, state activity, Federalist papers, and professional journals.

Professors may choose between the one-volume casebound book, American Constitutional Law, Twelfth Edition or two paperbacks: Volume 1 on Constitutional Structures: Separated Powers and Federalism, and Volume 2 on Constitutional Rights: Civil Rights and Civil Liberties.

This paperback Volume 1 (subtitled Constitutional Structures: Separated Powers and Federalism) includes Chapters 1 through 9 of American Constitutional Law, Twelfth Edition (hardback), plus the concluding chapter, "Efforts to Curb the Court."
