Overview

More than a casebook, this comprehensive text contains thirteen chapters that cover the entire range of topics in constitutional law. Each of the chapters includes an extended essay providing the legal, historical, political, and cultural contexts for the set of edited decisions from the United States Supreme Court that follows. In selecting, editing, and updating the materials, the authors emphasize recent trends in major areas of constitutional interpretation. At the same time, the authors include many landmark decisions, some of which retain importance as precedents while others illustrate the transient nature of constitutional interpretation. Because the book provides a good balance of decisions and authorial commentary, this text appeals to instructors of law as well as instructors of political science.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Stephens (law) and Scheb (political science, both U. of Tennessee-Knoxville) incorporate into the third edition of their textbook significant developments in US constitutional law during the four years since the second was completed, particularly the continuing commitment to redrawing boundaries between national and state power, the unprecedented 2000 decision, and questions raised by the war on terrorism. They also acknowledge the growing importance of state supreme court decisions. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

    Great Undergraduate Text

    I have used all three editions of this text at the University of Kentucky, Kentucky Western University, and now at New Mexico State University-Alamogordo. Stephens & Scheb have uncomplicated some rather complicated Constitutional Law concepts. Undergraduates generally have no trouble understanding. It is useful in both a Civil Liberties course and a Government Powers & Process Constitutional Law course. I have used it in both in successive semesters, thus giving many students who take both courses a financial break. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TEXT.
