Constitutionalism in the United States is not determined solely by decisions made by the Supreme Court. Moving beyond traditional casebooks, renowned scholars Howard Gillman, Mark A. Graber, and Keith E. Whittington take a refreshingly innovative approach in American Constitutionalism by presenting the material in a historical organization instead of the typical issues-based one. A single-volume edition of the authors' acclaimed two-volume text, this book is ideal for courses that cover the structures of government and civil rights and liberties in one semester or for two-semester courses that are organized historically.


* Covers all important debates in U.S. constitutionalism, organized by historical era

* Incorporates readings from all of the prominent participants in those debates

* Clearly lays out the political and legal contexts in chapter introductions

* Integrates more documents and cases than other texts, including decisions made by elected officials and state courts

* Offers numerous pedagogical features, including topical sections within each historical chapter, bulleted lists of major developments, explanatory headnotes for the readings, questions on court cases, illustrations and political cartoons, tables, and suggested readings
