Product Description

Constitutional Structure: Cases in Context places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed, its foundational principles, and recurring debates, rather than focusing simply on doctrinal details. Teachable, manageable, class-sized chunks of material are suited to one-semester courses or reduced credit configurations. Generous case excerpts make the text flexible for most courses, no matter the ideology or interpretative method. Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Providing additional context, the readings are long enough to help students understand the arguments, and edited where necessary to prevent overwhelming them. Constitutional Structure: Cases in Context represents rival interpretations of the Constitution by founders, presidents, and other critics of the Court';s decisions better than do many other casebooks. Boxed study guide questions help students focus on the salient issues, challenge them to consider the court's opinions from various perspectives, suggest comparisons or connections with other cases, and invite the student to think about recurring foundational principles and debates. The two-color design also features an art program. Constitutional Structure: Cases in Context covers Parts I and II of the parent book, Constitutional Law: Cases in Context, and can be taught in its entirety in one-semester courses.
