Constitutional Law: Cases, History, and Practice
In attempting to come closer to that elusive goal, the Fourth Edition features several significant changes. First, it provides, at appropriate points, concise statements of the frameworks of analysis developed by the Court to resolve constitutional claims. Providing these analytical frameworks is designed to provide a jumping-off point for students to consider the more difficult issues that lurk behind those rules.
Second, the Fourth Edition has attempted to highlight areas of the law that are often under-studied in a basic constitutional law class, such as immigration, naturalization and citizenship issues.
Third, the Fourth Edition aims to prepare students for practice. The process of making constitutional ?law? is more than the process by which the Supreme Court writes an opinion stating broad principles. The process happens every day, in small decisions made in courthouses, city halls and police stations across the nation.
