As the current political climate becomes increasingly contentious, the United States' founding document receives added attention. Donald C. Dahlin re-examines the US Constitution, challenging students to form educated opinions on important contemporary discussions. Presenting a limited number of landmark Supreme Court decisions, We the People provides support for multiple sides of a single debate. Each case is carefully contextualized and selections from the justices' rulings are held up for scrutiny. Rich fodder for classroom debate, this volume is both necessary and accessible.

About the Author:

Donald C. Dahlin is a professor of Political Science and Vice President for Academic Affairs Emeritus at the University of South Dakota. Currently a member of the American Bar Association's Standards Review Committee fellow of the Institute for Court Management, Dr. Dahlin has also served as Management Analyst in the United States Department of Justice, Secretary of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety, Acting President of the University of South Dakota, Vice-chair of the South Dakota Constitutional Revision Commission, and a member of the five-person Commission on the Advancement of Federal Law Enforcement. Most of his published research has focused on the work of state courts, including his monograph, Models of Court Management.

Review:

"Starting from the premise that the United States Constitution is our constitution, Donald Dahlin poses a series of thought-provoking and timely questions about what the carefully chosen words of the Constitution mean, how the words are interpreted, and who should interpret them. Dahlin's questions are on point and his analyses are elegantly accessible. His book's great contribution is to make our founding document understandable to those who are not lawyers and academics and to give readers the confidence to discuss contemporary constitutional issues intelligently." - Michael A. Wolff, professor of law, Saint Louis University; former chief justice of the Supreme Court of Missouri.

"We the People is an excellent supplemental text for undergraduate classes in American politics, including the intro course. It engages the student through posing questions for the student to answer and the providing the author's logic. The text is balanced and informed." - Kenneth J. Meier, Charles H. Gregory Chair in Liberal Arts, Department of Political Science, Texas A&M University
