Modern Constitutional Law: Cases and Notes
Since the first edition of Modern Constitutional Law was published nearly 20 years ago, it has continued to be one of the best sellers in a very competitive market. Professor Thomas E. Baker, who holds the prestigious James Madison Chair in Constitutional Law at Drake University, 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.'"
