Amendmentfs XVIII and XXI: Prohibition and Repeal by Sylvia Engdahl

The Constitutional Amendments: Beyond the Bill of Rights series provides in-depth coverage of key amendments ratified since 1791. Using both historical and contemporary primary and secondary sources-including landmark Supreme Court rulings-each volume first presents the historical background of the featured amendment, followed by an examination of how the court system has tested the validity and application of the amendment. The final chapter of each volume looks at contemporary controversies and debates surrounding the amendment and its impact on our everyday lives. All volumes in the series include an annotated table of contents; a chronology; the original text of the amendment along with a straightforward explanation of its key points; an annotated list of relevant court cases; a bibliography; and a subject index. For students and other researchers, Constitutional Amendments: Beyond the Bill of Rights illuminates the amendments and their integral, ongoing impact on American rights and responsibilities.
