Constitutional Law for a Changing America: A Short Course

Constitutional Law for a Changing America: A Short Course Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

In this update of the 2004 edition, Epstein (Northwestern U. School of Law) and Walker (political science, Emory U.) convey the exciting nature of constitutional law by highlighting how political events, Supreme Court personnel changes, interest groups, and public opinion may influence the judicial decision-making process. Chapters include major developments, excerpts from landmark decisions, "aftermath boxes" providing follow-up on key cases, and readings. A new chapter treats a 2008 Second Amendment case on the right to keep and bear arms. Appendices include the Constitution of the United States, Court information, a glossary, and index to an online case archive of supplemental high court decisions. This is an abridged version of their two-volume Constitutional Law for a Changing America. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
