Description:

Taking into account the political and intellectual forces that shape Supreme Court decisions, Constitutional Debate in Action examines how and why the United States Constitution continues to grow and adapt to human wants, passions, and values. Not your traditional constitutional-law textbook, this three volume set views the Constitution as an institutionalized form of debate by which people press their political demands and arguments upon the Supreme Court. Each volume examines in depth five landmark decisions. Governmental Powers covers: The Power of Judicial Review, The Commerce Power, The War Power, Presidential Emergency Powers, and Executive Privilege. Visit our website for sample chapters!
