Adhering to the multi-disciplinary and scholarly approach of its predecessors, the eighth edition of Constitutional Law guides students through all facets of constitutional law. Constitutional Law explores traditional constitutional doctrine through the lens of varying critical and social perspectives informed by political theory, philosophy, sociology, ethics, history, and economics. This comprehensive approach paired with carefully edited cases provides instructors with rich material for classroom discussion. Logically organized for a two-semester course, the first part of Constitutional Law tackles issues concerning separation of powers and federalism while the second part addresses all facets of individual rights and liberties. Constitutional Law also provides thoughtfully selected content on the First Amendment to give students a well-rounded understanding of religion and free speech issues.

Key Features:

  • The text’s attention to policy, including discussion of competing critical and social perspectives.
  • A multi-disciplinary approach that draws on political theory, philosophy, sociology, ethics, history, and economics.
  • Thoughtful editing, including both lightly and more tightly-edited cases that balances close textual analysis with comprehensive converge of important opinions and pivotal cases.
  • Streamlined treatment of First Amendment law, so that it efficiently provides the necessary fundamentals in free speech and religious liberties jurisprudence.

Review:

"Max Mintz, in sparkling prose, reminds us that war on the frontier of Revolutionary America was vitally important and that the Iroquois side of the story demands further investigation."-Don Higginbotham, University of North Carolina

"Packed with juicy nuggets of detail and clearly the result of prodigious research in primary sources."-"William and Mary Quarterly",

"Mintz's extensive knowledge of Revolutionary War figures and his gift to make them live illuminates descriptions of Gen. John Sullivan, Mohawk Joseph Brant, and others."-"Library Journal",

"In an unsparing and meticulously researched narrative, Mintz confronts the hard facts of a seamy side of the Revolution, a warfare in which both sides aimed at desolation and succeeded."-Edmund S. Morgan, Yale University

"Max Mintz's fascinating account is packed with colorful details. A lively narrative that succinctly traces the twists and turns of the wilderness warfare that raged on the northwestern frontier of the Confederation. A wonderful, fast paced read about an important dimension of the revolutionary struggle that has finally received the attention it deserves."-Richard Buel Jr., Wesleyan University
