Overview

The Fourth Edition of The History, Philosophy, and Structure of the American Constitution is designed for a two- or three-semester-hour course on the historical and philosophical antecedents as well as the case law of the separation of powers and federalism. It links the ""roots"" of the American government to its structural design.

The book is designed to meet the needs of professors of political science, government, history, and public policy by supplying a casebook that is at once accessible to study by virtue of generous chapter overviews, skillful case selection and editing, and extended introductions and following notes and questions. In addition, out of abundant respect for the rich intellectual tradition that exists within the university, this book fully reflects that Supreme Court cases emerge from history, and history itself reflects centuries of political and philosophical understanding.

This book is supplemented annually.

The eBook versions of this title feature links to Lexis Advance for further legal research options.
