Overview


In this groundbreaking text, three highly acclaimed scholars provide historical context that puts the politics back into constitutional studies.

Constitutionalism in the United States is not determined solely by decisions made by the Supreme Court. Moving beyond traditional casebooks, renowned scholars Howard Gillman, Mark A. Graber, and Keith E. Whittington take a refreshingly innovative approach in American Constitutionalism. Organized according to the standard two-semester sequence--in which Volume I covers Structures of Government and Volume II covers Rights and Liberties--this text is unique in that it presents the material in a historical organization within each volume, as opposed to the typical issues-based organization.

FEATURES:

* Covers all important debates in U.S. constitutionalism, organized by historical era

* Incorporates readings from all of the prominent participants in those debates

* Clearly lays out the political and legal contexts in chapter introductions

* Integrates more documents and cases than any other text on the market, including decisions made by elected officials and state courts

* Offers numerous pedagogical features, including topical sections within each historical chapter, bulleted lists of major developments, explanatory headnotes for the readings, questions on court cases, illustrations and political cartoons, tables, and suggested readings

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The Rights and Liberties volume of Gillman, Graber, and Whittington's landmark American Constitutionalism will prove to be eye-opening and enriching to teachers and students alike. Its scope is expansive and its expositions lucid. Surpassing all previous collegiate texts on the subject, the authors paint a vivid picture of American constitutional rights and liberties in the round. Gillman, Graber, and Whittington offer invaluable instruction--and often strikingly original insight--into the diverse ways that rights principles are implicated, debated, fought over, and institutionalized over time in real-world political, historical, and legal contexts, both inside the courts and out. American Constitutionalism is a major achievement--a gold-standard teaching tool doubling as a penetrating account of the development of constitutional rights and liberties in America."--Ken I. Kersch, Boston College

"Through their innovative choice of sources and cogent historical framing, Gillman, Graber, and Whittington have made a groundbreaking and valuable contribution to the teaching of constitutional law. American Constitutionalism allows students to explore the content and historical context of landmark cases, the nature of constitutional change, and the role of judges, elected officials, and activists in shaping constitutional law. The book is accessible to a wide range of students, yet its primary source materials are varied and complex enough to engage even the most seasoned of scholars."--Emily Zackin, Hunter College, City University of New York

"This innovative text revolutionizes the teaching of American civil rights and liberties by presenting legal controversies over rights in their historical context. Students learn not only how rights work in the United States, but also how they have evolved over time, and how debates over rights have contributed to the development of the nation. The rich and varied documentary sources encourage students to think critically and creatively rather than memorizing doctrine by rote. A true gem for the instructor who wants students to grapple with core questions about how democracy has been articulated in the United States over time."--Julie Nokov, University at Albany, State University of New York

Congratulations to the authors on winning the APSA Law and Courts Section 2013 Teaching and Mentoring Award, for this "impressive, innovative, and outstanding" textbook. The Teaching and Mentoring Award recognizes innovative teaching and instructional methods and materials in law and courts.
