This multi-volume set, was first published in 1987 as four volumes, commemorating 200 years since the Philadelphia Constitutional Convention in 1787. Subjects in this edition fall into five categories: doctrinal concepts of constitutional law (55%), people (15%), judicial decisions, mostly of the U.S. Supreme Court (15%), public acts, such as statutes, treaties, and executive orders (5%). and historical periods (10%). Articles vary in length from brief definitions of terms to treatments of major subjects of constitutional doctrine as long as 6,000 words, to articles on historical periods in essay form which may be even longer. The set opens with a list of all articles in alphabetical order and a huge list of contributors (historians, political scientists, lawyers) with their associated institutions. Entries are arranged alphabetically and cross- referenced in this edition containing 361 new articles by 237 authors. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Editors Levy and Karst, noted scholars and authors of numerous works on U.S. Constitutional law, have updated and revised this classic reference work--winner of the Dartmouth Medal--to reflect changes in American constitutional development since the first edition was published 14 years ago. This six-volume reference contains approximately 3000 contributions from academics, lawyers, and judges concerning key constitutional law cases and legislative developments relating to constitutional issues (e.g., abortion, welfare rights, and affirmative action). This edition updates the coverage of such key issues as the state regulation of commerce, the taking of property, substantive due process, and executive privilege. It also offers new information on key judicial personnel, such as U.S. Supreme Court justices, and assesses both classic and current theories of constitutional analysis (e.g., critical race and feminist theories). Cross references allow readers to pursue related and additional items throughout this outstanding work. Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries.--Steven Puro, St. Louis Univ.
