Constitutional law for a changing America: rights, liberties, and justice
This book is part of a two-volume set that highlights the role of politics -- both inside and outside of the Court - in the development of constitutional law. It covers Americans' various rights to freedom of religion, freedom of speech, and freedom of the press, while it also examines cases that have addressed both discrimination and defendants' rights. Extensive case excerpts and authored commentary help readers understand the law as it is currently being applied. Helpful indexes and appendices enhance the look-it-up value of the book.
