Description: Evaluating the field of constitutional law, this book gives essential 1coverage of governmental powers, structures, and civil liberties discussions. While well-documented cases are used to illustrate the subject, the authors also describe and explain constitutional law in their own narrative, providing readers with additional perspectives and insights. The use of graphs, illustrations, review questions, and extensive appendices highlight focal points, facilitate comprehension, and offer many helpful references that expand the scope of the material. Unlike difficult-to- read law texts, this book deftly presents constitutional law in a concise, reader-friendly approach.
