Overview

Constitutional Debate in Action: Governmental Powers / Edition 2

Part of a series of textbooks that views constitutional interpretations as an institutionalized form of debate by which litigants and their lawyers press their political demands and arguments upon the US Supreme Court. Thus it teaches students to look for the political context in which Court decisions are made. The five cases here consider the powers of the various branches and agencies of the national government. No date is noted for the first edition. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
