One of the best-known, most comprehensive, and widely read Constitutional Law textbooks published today, CONSTITUTIONAL INTERPRETATION, Tenth Edition, is updated to reflect current issues and cases relevant to students. CONSTITUTIONAL INTERPRETATION is known for offering a good balance between textual explanation and edited court cases but is written in clear, concise language. The text is popular with instructors because it explains difficult concepts extensively and clearly. In addition, each chapter possesses a stand-alone quality which gives the instructor freedom to use whatever he or she wishes, by chapter and within chapters. Major cases, notes, and charts support the text so students can clearly see how one concept relates to another.
