Constitutional Law: National Power and Federalism featuresstraightforward and informal text that is never simplistic. Its unique,time-tested “Examples and Explanations” pedagogy combines textualmaterial with well-written and comprehensive examples, explanations, andquestions to test students’ comprehension and provide practice inapplying information to fact patterns. The questions (in which there areoften a variety of issues in play) are similar to those on a law schoolor bar examination. A problem-oriented guide takes students through theprincipal doctrines of constitutional law that are covered in a typicalcourse. Constitutional Law: National Power and Federalism isdesigned to help students think about the larger issues ofconstitutional law with both depth and perception. Part of a two-volumeset (with a corresponding text on Individual Rights,) these bookscompose a foundation in the doctrines and methods of constitutional lawand constitutional argument. The organization parallels and complementsany major constitutional law casebook. Legal concepts and principlesappear in easily-digestible sections, followed by examples and analysisthat illustrate how to apply them in hypothetical situations. That comesfrom the strong authorship, as these authors have more than sixty yearscombined experience teaching Constitutional Law.The Sixth Edition features updated examples and explanations andincorporates recent important decisions from the Supreme Court’s October2009, 2010 and 2011 terms. They include Bond v. United States(2011) – individuals have standing to raise 10th Amendment challenges tofederal laws under which they are being prosecuted, for principles offederalism are designed to protect individuals as well as states;Arizona Christian School Tuition Organization v. Winn (2011) – statetaxpayers lacked standing under Flast v. Cohen to challenge astate law that provides tax credits for contributions made toorganizations that then use those funds to subsidize religiouseducation; Camreta v. Greene (2011) – an Article III case orcontroversy still exists where a government worker who prevailed in a §1983 action based on qualified immunity wishes to appeal the lowercourt’s ruling that plaintiff’s constitutional rights were violated, ifthe worker is in a position where he would otherwise be subject to thelower court’s ruling; Ashcroft v. al-Kidd (2011) –qualified immunity shielded former U.S. Attorney General from damages ina Bivens action where the constitutional principles governing thedetention of terrorists were not clearly established at the time heacted, regardless of his personal motives; Reichle v. Howards(Oct. Term 2011, No. 11-262) – whether Secret Service agents haveabsolute or qualified immunity from a 1st Amendment retaliatory arrestclaim brought by a person who made unsolicited physical contact withVice President Cheney; Los Angeles County v. Humphries (2010) –in a § 1983 action against a municipality, the same custom or policyrequirements that apply in suits seeking damages likewise apply in suitsfor prospective injunctive relief; Connick v. Thompson (2011) – amunicipality may be sued under § 1983 based on its alleged failure totrain its employees only where it is shown the municipality acted withdeliberate indifference, usually requiring proof of similar pastviolations that it chose to ignore; Virginia Office For Pr
