This paperback volume (subtitled "Constitutional Rights: Civil Rights and Civil Liberties") includes chapters 10 through 19 of Fisher/Harriger, American Constitutional Law, Ninth Edition (hardback). Now in its ninth edition, American Constitutional Law is the only book that develops constitutional law in the comprehensive sense. Along with containing analyses and excerpts of court decisions, the book highlights the efforts of legislatures, executives, the states, and the general public to participate in an ongoing political dialogue rather than passively receive a series of unilateral judicial commands. It covers all new developments in case law, congressional statutes, presidential policies, and initiatives undertaken by states under their own constitutions. The book includes readings not only from cases but congressional floor debates, committee reports, committee hearings, presidential vetoes and other statements, state actions, Federalist papers, and professional journals. It also includes a chapter on equal protection that addresses immigration law and the rights of aliens.

AMERICAN CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, Volumes I and II, combines cases, decisions, and authorial commentary to make the texts a perfect instructional choice. These comprehensive volumes cover the entire range of topics in constitutional law. Each of the chapters includes an extended essay providing the legal, historical, political, and cultural contexts for the set of edited decisions from the United States Supreme Court case that follows. In selecting, editing, and updating the materials, the authors emphasize recent trends in major areas of constitutional interpretation. At the same time, the authors include many landmark decisions, some of which retain importance as precedents while others illustrate the transient nature of constitutional interpretation. Because the book provides a good balance of decisions and authorial commentary, this text appeals to instructors of law as well as instructors of political science.
