Description

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.
