Overview

With essential coverage of governmental powers, structures, and civil liberties, this text is distinguished from other law books by its concise approach for undergraduate study. Well-edited cases are used to illustrate the subject, as the authors describe and explain constitutional law in their own narrative. Students are also engaged in learning through the use of graphs, illustrations, and review and discussion questions, which enable them to develop problem-solving and analytical abilities. Without overwhelming amounts of material, the text challenges students to learn constitutional law in a progressive and reader-friendly format, and is particularly appealing to undergraduate instructors in legal studies, political science, and other law programs.
