About this item

Constitutional Law: Cases in Context, Third Edition places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed since the Founding, its key foundational principles, and recurring debates. By providing both cases and context, it conveys the competing narratives that all lawyers ought to know and all constitutional practitioners need to know. Teachable, manageable, class-sized chunks of material are suited to one-semester courses or reduced credit configurations. Generous case excerpts make the text flexible for most courses. Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Innovative study guide questions presented before each case help students focus on the salient issues, challenging them to consider the court’s opinions from various perspectives, and suggesting comparisons or connections with other cases.

Key Benefits:

  • Revised doctrinal areas with newer cases.
  • Updated background contextual material to reflect current scholarship.
  • A highly accessible and engaging structure that examines the competing narratives that pervade the development of American constitutional law since the founding.
  • Related cases are grouped together into “assignments” and make for a reasonable amount of reading for each topic.
  • A wealth of photographs, maps, and primary documents to bring the cases to life.
