Product Overview

Containing more than 130 edited Supreme Court cases and commenting on over 1,000 more, this best-selling, all inclusive casebook details how the Supreme Court interprets the Constitution, and follows the growth and change in U.S. laws over periods of time. Focuses first on cases that deal with the basic structure of the United States government, and then explores those that deal with the right of individuals against government. Precedes each excerpt from the Court's opinion with notes placing it in its social, economic, or political context to help readers see how the meaning of the Constitution has changed over time, and what factors have directed this evolution. Features diverse case studies which enable readers to follow the dramatic change in personnel of the court and the impassioned nature of the divisions between the justices. Now includes 1998 Supreme Court decisions, plus highlights new cases on separation of powers and federalism--two doctrinal areas that have experienced major development in the last two decades. For professionals in law, political scientists, and history.
