Shorter than most Constitutional Law casebooks, American Constitutional Law: Powers and Liberties, 5E provides a broad survey of the field without overwhelming students. The basics of constitutional theory are presented without getting mired in highly theoretical discussions and cases are tightly edited to focus on the most important aspects with additional cases on select topics condensed into narrative summaries. The book focuses on cases and expository text rather than extensive academic commentary, and introductory text provides direction to students as they read and analyze the materials that follow. Additionally, challenging hypotheticals are provided throughout the text for use as student self-assessments or to launch stimulating class discussions. This highly teachable book can be used for a one- or two-semester course and is easily adaptable to suit each professor’s preferences.

Key Features of the New Edition:

  • Significant edits throughout the book further shorten an already manageable book
  • Addition of Zivotofsky v. Kerry on presidential powers over foreign affairs
  • Addition of Obergefell v. Hodges on same-sex marriage
  • Addition of Horne v. Department of Agriculture on the takings clause
  • Addition of two new cases on race-conscious university admissions policies: Fisher v. University of Texas at Austin and Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action
  • Addition of Town of Greece v. Galloway on the Establishment Clause
  • Addition of new voting rights case, Shelby County v. Holder
  • Addition of first amendment case in the context of abortion rights, McCullen v. Coakley
