Overview

This paperback treatise from renowned legal scholar Erwin Chemerinsky provides the clearest possible introduction to constitutional law and its underlying policies.

Taking a neutral stance in explaining constitutional law doctrine, Professor Chemerinsky presents a variety of perspectives. He examines specific topics and ties them to the broader themes of separation of powers, federalism, and individual liberties. Chemerinsky's lucid and direct writing style makes these difficult concepts easier for students to understand.

CONSTITUTIONAL LAW: Principles and Policies covers all major areas of study in the typical two—course sequence. The text proceeds logically from an introduction that integrates historical background with contemporary themes to:

powers of the federal government

limits on state regulatory power

protection of individual liberties and civil rights

procedural due process

protection of economic liberties

equal protection

protection of expression and religion.

With the clarity and insight he displays in his popular student treatise on federal jurisdiction, Chemerinsky captures student interest in this intelligent and nuanced introduction to constitutional law. His extremely well written book may easily be used in segments or sections without redundancy or confusion.

All of my friends and I ended up buying this book by the end of our Constitutional Law class. It explains everything in a clear, understandable way -- and uses the major cases that are in every casebook. Buy this book now, read the sections that correspond to the assigned reading, as you move through the semester, and be ahead of the game -- rather than buying it at the end (which nearly everyone does) and rushing to catch up before the final. Trust me. It's worth it.

Any law student with half a brain will buy this treatise. I attended the Harvard Law School, and this book saved my life in both Constitutional Law and my advanced constitutional law courses. Although Professor Chemerinsky has a progressive spin to his text, the book is well-balanced overall. Highly recommended.

i thought i'd save a little money and try renting from barnes and noble, but it was a BIG MISTAKE. The book i received was in TERRIBLE condition--think bent pages, ripped cover, writing/underlining that made the text illegible. Also, when I called to complain, they said my only option was to return it. They were absolutely unwilling to do anything to make the matter right, such as sending me a better copy or crediting back a portion of what I paid under the assumption the book was in adequate condition. For a large company, I would expect better customer service. There are better places to shop, I recommend you stick to the competition and do NOT waste your time/money dealing with Barnes and Noble rentals.
