Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Ample primary source material includes case excerpts with introductions, headnotes, and Special Feature boxes that give students additional context for the cases.

This Seventh Edition has been updated with many new cases, including some classics and a number of recent Supreme Court decisions. These recent cases deal with fundamental issues such as abortion (Gonzales v. Carhart), racial integration in schools (Parents Involved in Community Schools v. Seattle School District No. 1), Federal funding of faith-based projects (Hein v. Freedom from Religion Foundation, Inc.), and the restrictions of the McCain-Feingold law (Federal Election Commission v. Wisconsin Right to Life, Inc).
