About the Author:

With a distinguished teaching and academic career, Craig R. Ducat has made an indelible contribution to the Constitutional Law arena. A professor at Northern Illinois University since receiving his Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota, he was awarded the Presidential Teaching Professorship from 1995-1999; the Award for Excellence in Teaching, Mortar Board Senior Honor Society, 1998; and the Award for Excellence in Teaching, Phi Sigma Zeta in 2001. He was also recently granted the title Distinguished Teaching Professor Emeritus. Dr. Ducat is best known for writing the CONSTITUTIONAL INTERPRETATION casebooks.

Review:

"The author does an excellent job of interweaving explanation with case excerpts. Many texts in this area focus the case excerpts at the end of each chapter with the authors' discussion of the subject matter taking up the bulk of the chapter. Ducat has mastered the fine art of knowing when explanation is necessary and when the cases speak for themselves."

"It's a very robust text that will work in a number of settings. A student who reads this text and digests it will have an excellent foundation in the case law of Supreme Court-based constitutional controversies."

"The major strength of this book is its clear conceptualization of important legal topics and concepts. The current chapters are each well structured and clearly conceptualize and explain the relevant material."
