With meticulous revising and updating throughout, Epstein and Walker streamline material while accounting for recent landmark cases and new scholarship. This seventh edition features two important improvements:

  • a completely revamped interior layout and design that clearly delineates between commentary and opinion excerpts while more effectively showcasing photos, Justice biographies, and the Aftermath and Global Perspective sidebars.
  • the case commentary not only details the case Facts, but now also includes an Arguments section that details the attorneys arguments for each side leading to more focused and effective reading of the case.

    A great overview of the most important cases in Constitutional law, December 8, 2007

    I had a Constitutional Law class while an undergraduate which relied very heavily on this book, and I could not be more satisfied. While I was a chemistry major, I really enjoyed this book because it had the actual written opinions (or significant excerpts thereof) of the most important and precedent-making cases in a variety of topics of Constitutional Law. Having those opinions ready available was great, and the analysis that followed was also quite helpful to get at some of the cases with denser reasoning.

    Anyway, whether for class or pleasure, a great read and highly recommended.

    Constitutional Law for a Changing America is the perfect textbook for Con. Law courses because on one hand it’s basic enough that people like myself who do not have a deep rooted background in law can understand it, but not so basic that it bores people who have lengthy backgrounds and intrests in law to tears. The case excerpts are brief as not to tie students down in wordy verbage, but are excerpted in such a way that one gets the most important points of the cases. With the right professor, who can explain to students that a case like Korematsu v. United States for example, is not about the plight of one man during WW2, but rather concearns what governmental and military leaders can do during conditions of war, which effects our daily lives…Constitutional Law for a Changing America: Institutional Powers and Constraintsis a must have book.
