This paperback volume (subtitled ''Constitutional Structures: Separated Powers and Federalism'') includes chapters 1 through 9 of Fisher/Harriger, American Constitutional Law, Ninth Edition (hardback) plus the concluding chapter, ''Efforts to Curb the Court.'' Now in its ninth edition, American Constitutional Law is the only book that develops constitutional law in the comprehensive sense. Along with containing analyses and excerpts of court decisions, the book highlights the efforts of legislatures, executives, the states, and the general public to participate in an ongoing political dialogue rather than passively receive a series of unilateral judicial commands. It covers all new developments in case law, congressional statutes, presidential policies, and initiatives undertaken by states under their own constitutions. The book includes readings not only from cases but congressional floor debates, committee reports, committee hearings, presidential vetoes and other statements, state actions, Federalist papers, and professional journals. It also includes a chapter on equal protection that addresses immigration law and the rights of aliens.
