Constitutional Law: Principles and Policy, Cases and Materials
LexisNexis, May 29, 2012 - Law - 1760 pages
The authors of this casebook are committed to reflect fully the dynamism, controversy, and excitement that characterize contemporary Constitutional Law. While generally striving for brevity, the authors lightly edit cases where the Court appears to be embarking on a new doctrinal course so that sharply different constitutional philosophies are fully and fairly presented.
Features of the new Eighth Edition include:
• Hamdan v. Rumsfeld -- the legality of the use of military commissions by the Executive Branch.
The new 8th edition includes some of the latest law review literature as well as the leading constitutional cases covered in the previous edition.
Constitutional Law: Principles and Policies is updated annually with a supplement addressing recent developments in the area of Constitutional Law.
