One of the best-known, most comprehensive, and widely read Constitutional Law textbooks published today, CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, Ninth Edition, is updated to reflect current issues and cases relevant to students. Offering a good balance between textual explanation and edited court cases written in clear, concise language, this text remains the standard text for both students and instructors alike. CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, Ninth Edition, is popular with instructors because it explains difficult concepts extensively and clearly and, at times, graphically. In addition, each chapter possesses a stand-alone quality, giving the instructor complete freedom to use whatever he or she wishes, by chapter and within chapters. Throughout, major cases, notes, and charts are bridged with text so students can clearly see how one concept relates to another.
