Description

For undergraduate courses in Constitutional Law, Civil Rights and Liberties, Introduction to American Politics, and Introduction to Law.This text examines contemporary and perennial constitutional issues in civil liberties and rights by posing questions designed to engage students in an exploration of how and why U.S. Supreme Court Justices have interpreted the provisions of the U.S. Constitution-i.e., relating to Freedom of Expression and Religion, and Equal Protection and Privacy. Each question is followed by an essay "answer" that explores, in a thought-provoking manner, the variety of ways these issues have been responded to in real cases.show more
