About this title:

Synopsis:

This collection of essays offers a comprehensive amendment-by-amendment, clause-by-clause account of the Bill of Rights' recent transmutation. The essays are based on the assumption that to understand the Bill of Rights today, one must both understand the original meaning of the amendments and explore the history, theory and practice behind those amendments. The book suggests that the provisions of the Bill of Rights have been subjected to greater interpretative revision by the Supreme Court than other parts of the Constitution. It should be of interest not only to lawyers and law and political science students, but to anyone with an interest in the ongoing interpretation of the Bill of Rights.

Product Description:

While recent years have seen a flood of literature on the Bill of Rights, this collection of essays, all by highly regarded constitutional scholars, is the first to offer a comprehensive amendment-by-amendment, clause-by-clause account of the Bill's recent sweeping transmutation.

The book confirms the suspicions of critics of judicial activism, suggesting that the provisions of the Bill of Rights have been subjected to much greater interpretive revision by the Supreme Court than other parts of the Constitution.
