Forside
Rowman & Littlefield, 2004 - 627 sider
First published in 1954, Summaries of Leading Cases on the Constitution quickly became the gold standard for concise summaries of important U.S. Supreme Court cases on constitutional law. Covering decisions from the establishment of the Court to the present, the book incorporates every facet of constitutional law, including the powers and privileges of the three branches of the national government, federalism, war powers, and extensive briefs on civil rights and liberties. The fourteenth edition has been thoroughly reorganized to make it easier to use and to correspond more closely to the outline of the U.S. Constitution. In addition, it includes information on important concurring and dissenting opinions, the complete text of the Constitution, a readily useable index and dictionary, and information about Supreme Court justices. Updated through the end of the 2003 term, the fiftieth anniversary edition of Summaries of Leading Cases on the Constitution is an essential resource for law students, lawyers, and everyone interested in our nation's Constitution.
