Authoritative coverage examines the constitutional issues that are studied and litigated today. This text thoroughly analyzes and discusses the origins of judicial review and federal jurisdiction, the sources of national authority, the growth of federal commerce and fiscal powers, and the limits on state laws that burden interstate commerce. This book then explores and analyzes individual liberties and due process, including equal protection, freedom of speech and religion, federal powers to enforce the Bill of Rights, and limitations on the jurisdiction of federal courts. Finally, this one-volume treatise explores the separation of powers including the restrictions on the foreign affairs power and the recent cases on the war on terror. This book (and the 6-volume treatise by the same authors) has been cited by state and federal courts at all levels, from trial court to the U.S. Supreme Court, over 1,000 times.
