American Constitutional Lawby Ralph A. Rossum, G. Alan Tarr
To understand the principles, prospects, and problems of American government, one must understand the U.S. Constitution. AMERICAN CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, Fifth Edition, analyzes the design and purpose of this document, and in doing so examines how power is conferred and limited among the branches of the federal government. Drawing on constitutional interpretations from many sources, this text provides a complete depiction of the United States' defining document.
