This book presents an analysis of the modern Supreme Court which takes full account of both its legal and political aspects. The book has an empirical bias, and starts with an examination of the political and social forces which brought to prominence the kind of social issues of recent decades. Chapter Two traces the legal and judicial developments that have occurred roughly in parallel to, and sometimes in direct connection with, the rise of the social issue in American politics. Chapters Three to Seven analyze the Court's decisions in the major policy areas affected by these political and judgemental dynamics, namely abortion, capital punishment, affirmative action for racial minorities and women, and other cases including gay rights, pornography and governmental support for religious values. The concluding chapter examines the Court's suitability to continue to carry the political burden that it has acquired.

A course on constitutional law and civil liberties can be and is nothing less than an extended inquiry into the meaning of America. American Constitutional Law: Volume 1 Governmental Powers and Democracy, newly revised by Donald P. Kommers, John E. Finn, and Gary J. Jacobsohn, is a casebook made for such an inquiry. True to the liberal arts tradition from which it emerges, it goes beyond the facts and rulings of the great cases in American constitutional law to engage important issues of political theory and the nature of our constitutional democracy. Although the focus is on American constitutional law, Kommers, Finn, and Jacobsohn break new ground by incorporating comparative materials that enrich the study of the American Constitution by challenging the reader to assess American constitutional values in light of other traditions and understandings of constitutional governance. In an era of constitutional globalization, this new edition of a distinguished text is essential to an appreciation of tradition and diversity.Volume 1 focuses on governmental structures and relationships and includes a new chapter on elections and political representation.
