American Constitutional Law: Structure and Reconstruction : Cases, Notes, and Problems
Law school casebook covers structural constitutional law (federal judicial power, distribution of national powers, Congress' powers, federalism, and judicial protection of interstate commerce), and the reach of the Fourteenth Amendment (citizenship, privileges and immunities, due process, equal protection, and state action). Contains approximately 80 primary cases, including a greater proportion of recent Supreme Court decisions than other casebooks in the field. The notes provide the context, and realistic problems require application of constitutional law principles and cases and undecided issues. Facilitates teacher and student satisfaction in understanding the basic framework of American Constitutional law.
