Abstract "In American Constitutionalism, Second Edition, renowned authors Howard Gillman, Mark A. Graber, and Keith E. Whittington offer an innovative approach to the two-semester Constitutional Law sequence (Volume 1 covers 'Institutions' and Volume II covers 'Rights and Liberties') that presents the material in a historical organization within each volume, as opposed to the typical issues-based organization. Looking at Supreme Court decisions historically provides an opportunity for instructors to teach - and students to reflect on - the political factions and climate of the day. The second edition has been streamlined and also features updated cases, analysis, illustrations, and figures."--Back cover.
