Featured Resource List

Ronald D. Rotunda, John E. Nowak Treatise on constitutional law : substance and procedure, 4th ed., Thomson West, 2007.

 

KF4550.R63 2007

 

This 4th edition of a classic provides scholars, practitioners, judges, and officials with an up-to-date analysis and synthesis of federal constitutional law. With January 5 , 2007 as the cut-off for cases, its focus is primarily on the Supreme Court and incorporates the political, historical, and economic background of court decisions. The first three editions were acclaimed by scholars, judges, and practitioners. This new edition follows in their footsteps, providing a thorough, cogent analysis of every area of constitutional law. Analyzes constitutional questions in terms of precedent, political science theory, economics, and American history, thus making the leading cases understandable concerning both their overall significance and the precise legal rules that they establish.
