Description

Completely updated to incorporate the myriad changes in the Supreme Court over the last six years, this classic study reflects the impact of the Court's response to the ongoing egalitarian revolution and examines the evolving tiered standards of review under the "new" equal protection of the laws jurisprudence. Addressing major recent developments in the realm of due process, Abraham also considers the continuing emphasis on "incorporation" and "nationalization" of the Bill of Rights. The book includes an extended consideration of freedom of expression, a chapter on recent religious controversies, and detailed discussions of the affirmative action controversy and the debate over abortion.show more
