Political factors influence judicial decisions. Arguments and input from lawyers and interest groups, the ebb and flow of public opinion, and especially the ideological and behavioral inclinations of the justices all combine to shape the development of constitutional doctrine. Drawing on political science as much as from legal studies, Constitutional Law for a Changing America helps students realize that Supreme Court cases are more than just legal names and citations. With meticulous revising, authors Lee Epstein and Thomas G. Walker streamline material while accounting for recent landmark cases and new scholarship.
Ideal for a one-semester course, the Seventh Edition of Short Course offers all of the hallmarks of the Rights and Powers volumes in a more condensed format. Students and instructors benefit from the Constitutional Law for a Changing America Resource Center, which features more than 500 excerpted supplemental cases, links to CQ Press reference materials, and a moot court simulation.
