The Dynamic Constitution: An Introduction to American Constitutional Law Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Harvard law professor Richard H. Fallon introduces non-lawyers to the workings of American constitutional law. He writes about leading constitutional doctrines and issues, including freedom of speech and religion, the guarantee of equal protection, rights to fair procedures, and rights to privacy and sexual autonomy. Fallon describes many of the fascinating cases and personalities that have shaped constitutional law, demonstrating how historical, cultural, and other factors have influenced constitutional adjudication. Furthermore, Fallon argues that the Constitution must serve as a dynamic document that adapts to the changing conditions inherent in human affairs.
