Book News Annotation:

What sets this textbook on American constitutional law by Epstein (Northwestern U. School of Law) and Walker (political science, Emory U.) apart from other casebooks on the subject is its focus on the role of political processes within the formation of law. While also discussing classic cases that illustrate the development of constitutional law, they emphasize the arguments raised by lawyers and interest groups and the politics surrounding litigation as related to the legal, social, economic, and political contexts in which the Supreme Court reaches its decisions. Fourteen chapters are presented in sections concerned with the structure of the judiciary and the incorporation of the Bill of Rights, civil liberties, the rights of the criminally accused, and civil rights.
