This 6-vol. set of the 1987 Dartmouth Medal winner includes all of the material from the original 4-vol. set and 1992 Supplement, as well as updated original articles and completely new articles covering recent concepts and court cases since 1992. New material is alphabetically integrated throughout the set. Appendices include a case index and primary documents. Among the new articles in this edition are adoption, race, and the Constitution; birthright citizenship; Clinton v. Jones; disability discrimination; hate crimes; modern militias; Violence Against Women Act; and more.
The articles in the set provide comprehensive coverage of all aspects of constitutional law, as well as biographies of people who have had an impact on our government's legal framework (Supreme Court Justices, Presidents, Cabinet Members, Lawyers, and more). Judicial decisions handed down by the Supreme Court are also analyzed. Congressional laws, executive orders and other public acts that impacted our legal structure are also examined. Finally articles also cover historical periods (of the Court as well as of US Historical eras). Contributors all focused solely on the constitutional aspects of the many topics covered in this six-volume set and they are professionals who also had their own impact -- lawyers, historians, and political scientists.
"This edition updates the coverage of such key issues as the state regulation of commerce, the taking of property, substantive due process, and executive privilege. It also offers new information on key judicial personnel, such as U.S. Supreme Court justices, and assesses both classic and current theories of constitutional analysis (e.g. critical race and feminist theories). Cross references allow readers to pursue related and additional items throughout this outstanding work. Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries."
