Modern Constitutional Law: Cases and Notes
Since the first edition of Modern Constitutional Law was published nearly thirty ago, it has continued to be one of the best sellers in a very competitive market. Over the years, many law professors have adopted this user-friendly casebook-which is no surprise, given the rave reviews this book has enjoyed. Professor Thomas E. Baker stated that he has been so loyal to the Rotunda brand name over the years, because the book is compact without being superficial. It remarkabl[y] manages to include all the important cases yet preserves a fuller set of opinions to guarantee 'thoughtful classroom discussion.
