The Constitution of the United States, 2d / Edition 2by Michael Stokes Paulsen, Steven G. Calabresi, Michael W. McConnell, Samuel L. Bray
Pub. Date: 06/19/2013
Publisher: West Academic
This casebook emphasizes the text, structure, and history of the Constitution. It uses "great cases" as paradigms for learning the major issues in constitutional law, and it offers less attention to the small ripples of modern doctrine. It stresses the task of interpretation, including the interpretation of the Constitution by the political branches. And it gives attention to features of our constitutional history that are neglected in many casebooks, including slavery, the horizontal federalism of Article IV, the amendment process of Article V, and representative democracy.
