A March of Liberty: A Constitutional History of the United States, Third Edition, is a clearly written, comprehensive overview of American constitutional development. Covering the country's history from the founding of the English colonies up through the latest decisions of the Supreme Court, this two-volume work presents the most complete discussion of American constitutional history currently available. Authors Melvin I. Urofsky and Paul Finkelman successfully blend cases and court doctrines into the larger fabric of American political, economic, and social history. They discuss in detail the great cases handed down by the Supreme Court, showing how these cases played out in society and how constitutional growth parallels changes in American culture. In addition, they examine lesser-known decisions that played important roles in affecting change, and also provide in-depth analyses of the intellects and personalities of the Supreme Court justices who made these influential decisions. Updated with the most recent scholarship, the third edition of A March of Liberty offers more cases on a broader range of issues including the environment, labor, civil rights, and Native American concerns. It now presents new selections on decisions, statutes, and constitutional developments from the first decade of the 21st century--like the USA PATRIOT Act, presidential signing statements, same-sex marriage, reproductive rights, campaign financing, and firearms regulation. The text reflects the current trends in American constitutional history by employing a holistic approach that integrates the decisions of the state and lower federal courts with the decisions of the Supreme Court. A March of Liberty, Third Edition, features useful supplemental materials including the text of the Constitution, a chronological list of Supreme Court justices, an appendix of the names and years for each Supreme Court justice, and suggested further readings. Gracefully written and clearly explained, this popular two-volume set is indispensable for courses in American constitutional history and law.

Wer die USA verstehen will, muss zu ihrem Ursprungsmythos zurückgehen: zur Amerikanischen Revolution. Mit der Boston Tea Party begann 1763 der Aufstand gegen die britische Kolonialherrschaft. Die Geburt der amerikanischen Nation erfolgte in zähen Schlachten. Sie sah menschliche Abgründe an Verrat und Grausamkeit, aber auch selbstlose Heldentaten und die hehren Ideale der Unabhängigkeitserklärung vom 4. Juli 1776. Erst im britisch-amerikanischen Krieg von 1812 bis 1815 fand sie ihren Abschluss. Michael Hochgeschwender erzählt diese dramatische Geschichte und zeichnet ein neues Bild der Revolution, das auch die Perspektive der Briten berücksichtigt. Geschichte wird meist aus der Perspektive der Sieger geschrieben. Wer etwa Mel Gibson dem Monumentalepos „The Patriot“ britische Soldaten hinschlachten sieht, für den ist klar, dass freiheitsliebende Helden despotischen Besatzern gegenüberstanden. Doch tatsächlich war die Geschichte komplizierter. Nicht wenige der späteren Amerikaner hielten zu den Briten. Auch für die schwarzen Sklaven waren sie nicht selten die bessere Wahl. Und den Aufständischen ging es nicht nur um universalistische Ideale, sondern auch um ganz handfeste wirtschaftliche Interessen, wie etwa den Schmuggel oder den Raub von Indianerland. Doch die Amerikanische Revolution weckte auch Hoffnungen, die bis heute nichts von ihrer Strahlkraft verloren haben. Schon bei ihrer Geburt hat die amerikanische Nation der Welt ein Janusgesicht gezeigt, das ihre Politik bis heute prägt.

The Constitution is not so simple that it explains itself—nor so complex that only experts can understand it. In this accessible, nonpartisan quick reference, historian Andrew Arnold provides concise explanations of the Constitution's meaning and history, offering little-known facts and anecdotes about every article and all twenty-seven amendments. This handy guide won’t tell you what the Constitution ought to say, nor what it ought to mean. It will tell you what the Constitution says and what it has meant. A Pocket Guide to the US Constitution presents a straightforward way to understand the American Constitutional system. Without wading through lengthy legal prose, heavy historical analysis, or polemical diatribes, you can easily find out what the emoluments clause means, learn about gerrymandering and separation of powers, or read a brief background on why slaves in colonial America were considered 3/5 of a person. Small enough to put in your pocket, backpack, or briefcase, A Pocket Guide to the US Constitution can be used to comprehend current events, dig deeper into court cases, or sort out your own opinions on constitutional issues.

This book examines the role played by domestic and international judges in the “flexibilization” of legal systems through general principles. It features revised papers that were presented at the Annual Conference of the European-American Consortium for Legal Education, held at the University of Parma, Italy, May 2014. This volume is organized in four sections, where the topic is mainly explored from a comparative perspective, and includes case studies. The first section covers theoretical issues. It offers an analysis of principles in shaping Dworkin’s theories about international law, a reflection on the role of procedural principles in defining the role of the judiciary, a view on the role of general principles in transnational judicial communication, a study on the recognition of international law from formal criteria to substantive principles, and an inquiry from the viewpoint of neo-constitutionalism. The second section contains studies on the role of general principles in selected legal systems, including International Law, European Union Law as well as Common Law systems. The third section features an analysis of select legal principles in a comparative perspective, with a particular focus on the comparison between European and American experiences. The fourth and last section explores selected principles in given areas of law, including the misuse of the lex specialis principle in the relationship between international human rights law and international humanitarian law, the role of the judiciary in Poland as regards discrimination for sexual orientation, and the impact of the ECtHR case law on Italian criminal law with regard to the principle of legality. Overall, the book offers readers a thoughtful reflection on how the interpretation, application, and development of general principles of law by the judiciary contribute to the evolution of legal systems at both the domestic and international levels as well as further their reciprocal interactions.
