Overview

CQ Researcher is a current affairs periodical. The 17 CQ Researcher reports included in this collection are organized into four sections on governmental powers and structure, security, liberty, and equality. Each section begins with an essay that weaves together the related reports, examines the relevant constitutional concepts, and discusses new developments. Some issues considered are gay marriage and presidential power. The reader-friendly layout includes boxed readings, chronologies, tables and graphs, and b&w photos. The text of the US Constitution completes the book. The book will help general readers and students understand the relationship between current events and constitutional principles.
