Introduction to American constitutional structure
Unlike most constitutional law books, it does not assume that the students have any particular knowledge of American history, government, or law, so it begins with a rich introductory chapter to provide students with a necessary foundation for the rest of the material. Thereafter, it supplements the familiar cases with historical context and pictures and biographies of current and famous justices adjacent to their opinions.
