Now, Irons has created a genuinely new approach to constitutional law in his latest effort to educate Americans about the legal system: a casebook, the first of its kind, that includes the seminal cases that make up our countrys legal legacy and pairs them with material that sheds light on the political milieu in which these decisions were made.Including excerpts from over sixty landmark decisions in civil rights and civil liberties cases, Cases and Controversies also contains newspaper articles, transcripts of legislative hearings, essays from journals of political and social opinion, statements of concerned interest groups, and a wealth of other primary source material that links whats going on inside the court with whats going on outside of it.A major boon for teachers of undergraduate courses in constitutional law, political science, civil rights and liberties, and the Supreme Court, Cases and Controversies is a fascinating window onto the law for all Americans.
