This two-volume casebook goes beyond a simple description of legal rules to examine the social and political aspects of the litigation process and how it impacts constitutional decision-making. Volume I explores the relationship between law and politics by emphasizing the real-world impact of the Court's opinion on the operation of United States political institutions, while Volume II focuses on how court opinions impact the rights and liberties of ordinary citizens.
