The Authors, recognized authorities in the subject for over a quarter of a century, provide succinct and authoritative coverage of the major principles in modern American Constitutional Law. This book, a shortened version based on the authors' hornbook-popular with students-and their five volume treatise-popular with judges, practioners and scholars-analyzes the constitutional issues that are studied in law schools today. It discusses the origins of judicial review and federal jurisdiction, federal commerce and spending powers, state powers in light of the dormant commerce clause, the war power, freedom of speech and religion, equal protection, due process, and other important individual rights and liberties. Each chapter begins with a summary of the basic law as it exists today, followed by an analysis of the work of the Court. Judges and law review authors have made the Nowak & Rotunda treatise one of the most cited books in modern years.
