Item description for Constitutional Law for a Changing America: Institutional Powers and Constraints by Lee Epstein...
In a thorough exploration of the Supreme Court's interpretation of the political power distributed by the Constitution, Epstein and Walker explain and analyze such essential concepts as separation of powers and federalism, as well as the authority to tax, spend, conduct war, regulate commerce, and limit rights to property and contracts. This revised volume includes both recent and important rulings on limits to federal power, and thoughtfully examines the impact of national emergencies, terrorism, and the war in Iraq on the government's capacity to act in the interests of national security.

Reviews - What do customers think about Constitutional Law for a Changing America: Institutional Powers and Constraints?
A great overview of the most important cases in Constitutional law Dec 8, 2007
I had a Constitutional Law class while an undergraduate which relied very heavily on this book, and I could not be more satisfied. While I was a chemistry major, I really enjoyed this book because it had the actual written opinions (or significant excerpts thereof) of the most important and precedent-making cases in a variety of topics of Constitutional Law. Having those opinions ready available was great, and the analysis that followed was also quite helpful to get at some of the cases with denser reasoning.
Anyway, whether for class or pleasure, a great read and highly recommended.
