Overview

American Constitutional Law: An Overview, Analysis, and Integration is a clear and comprehensive presentation of the U.S. Constitution and U.S. constitutional law that is accessible to law students and lawyers as well as to graduate students and professionals in other disciplines that intersect with constitutional law. While developing and synthesizing the major doctrinal areas of constitutional law, William A. Kaplin elucidates the basic concepts, classical foundations, and first principles; the processes for interpreting the Constitution; and the analytical methodologies for applying individual clauses and cases to new situations. He also provides extensive background drawn from history, political science, and jurisprudence. In addition, the book contains substantial study guidance for students in law school courses and law-related graduate school courses, and for independent learners.
