SUMMARY

The new Third Edition covers cases down to the present, including important decisions on racial discrimination, privacy, the rights of women, the "new equal protection" and the welfare state, and executive power. The cases, selected for their long-standing significance for constitutional law, are arranged in chronological fashion and further subdivided into pertinent topical categories. Headnotes for each case are designed to familiarize the reader with the historical and constitutional context, the factual background, and the relationship of the case to prior and subsequent ones. While the cases are, of course, edited, generous extracts are provided so that the reader may more fully understand the legal, political, social, and economical considerations employed in a judicial decision. Where appropriate, portions of dissenting opinions are included. Emphasis is on cases which best depict the Supreme Court's role in the making of public policy, particularly those Supreme Court decisions that have served as an instrument for reform and change.Kutler, Stanley I. is the author of 'Supreme Court and the Constitution Readings in American Constitutional History', published 1984 under ISBN 9780393954371 and ISBN 0393954374.
