Summary: Congratulations to Lee Epstein and Thomas G. Walker, winners of APSA'S 2003 Law & Courts Teaching and Mentoring Award

So much more than a traditional casebook, this innovative text gets students to realize--quite powerfully--that Supreme Court cases are more than just legal names and citations. The landmark cases analyzed and excerpted in this highly successful two-volume set involve real people embroiled in real disputes whose cases have real political ...show more consequences. Blending the best of legal and political science approaches to constitutional law, Epstein and Walker explain the political factors that influence judicial decisions. Their emphasis on political context--arguments and input from lawyers and interest groups, justices' ideological and behavioral inclinations, elected officials' partisan positions, as well as public opinion--allows students to see the development of constitutional doctrine within a decidedly political environment.

Examining the Supreme Court's interpretation of the basic liberties guaranteed by the Bill of Rights and subsequent amendments to the Constitution, the authors cover such important topics as freedom of speech, the right to bear arms, discrimination, and political participation. Bringing the fifth edition fully up to date, this comprehensive volume assesses recent rulings on affirmative action, privacy, and regulation of the Internet, as well as tackles the impact of war and terrorism on the government's authority to restrict civil rights.

Authored commentary, wrapped around the cases, helps students understand a particular case, as well as place it within the larger picture of an evolving and dynamic body of law. To help students see alternative points of view, the authors have included excerpts of important concurring and dissenting opinions for virtually all cases in the book. Curious students will appreciate both the Aftermath boxes which describe what happened to litigants after a ruling, and the Global Perspective boxes which compare U.S. case law to similar rulings and tenets in foreign judicial systems. Epstein and Walker also include profiles of influential groups and justices, photographs of litigants, exhibits from cases, and lively descriptions of the events that led to the suits. Website addresses are included throughout, giving students easy access to the full text of opinions as well as to an audio recording of oral arguments when available.

The electronic case archive you've been waiting for... Point and click to over 200 excerpted cases on clca.cqpress.com. It's free with Constitutional Law for a Changing America.

So useful and comprehensive, you are not going to believe it's FREE. With the publication of the fifth edition of the Rights, Liberties, and Justice volume, CQ Press is launching an electronic archive of more than 200 cases mentioned or referenced in the text's commentary. What's more, Epstein and Walker have excerpted these supporting cases so you can count on consistency from case to case and be confident that each decision has been edited with great sensitivity. Following the same format as those appearing in the printed text, archived cases will present the justices' votes, a summary of case facts, and a carefully edited version of the justices' opinions. By assigning cases in the archive, instructors can substitute or supplement the decisions that appear in the book without the hassle of editing or requiring students to read the full version of the Court's opinions. Offering maximum flexibility, instructors can now assign a favorite case, or send students to a quality resource for paper assignments and further study. ...show less
