Overview

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book.

CONSTITUTIONAL LAW: PRINCIPLES IN PRACTICE, 2/e offers comprehensive coverage of two traditional constitutional law subjects: governmental powers and civil liberties. It strives to balance historically significant cases with contemporary problems and includes excerpts of significant cases within the text. Written in a style designed for undergraduates, legal terms are defined in a running glossary and applications assignments appear at the end of each chapter. This edition includes new end-of-chapter exercises, expanded appendices, current case law and features that demonstrate how constitutional law occurs at all levels, branches and areas of the government–not just in the U.S. Supreme Court.
