"The second edition of Macmillan's Encyclopedia of the American Constitution is even better than the first, taking a novel but very workable approach to updating a title that garnered considerable praise when it first appeared in 1986 -- a masterful contribution to the reference literature. It fulfills its mission of bridging the disciplines of history, law, and politics using language that is accessible to a mixed audience ranging from high-school students and the general public to constitutional law scholars. It is recommended for public, secondary, academic, and law school libraries, as well as appropriate special libraries."
