Editorial Reviews

Review


"The Rights and Liberties volume of Gillman, Graber, and Whittington's landmark American Constitutionalism will prove to be eye-opening and enriching to teachers and students alike. Its scope is expansive and its expositions lucid. Surpassing all previous collegiate texts on the subject, the authors paint a vivid picture of American constitutional rights and liberties in the round. Gillman, Graber, and Whittington offer invaluable instruction--and often strikingly original insight--into the diverse ways that rights principles are implicated, debated, fought over, and institutionalized over time in real-world political, historical, and legal contexts, both inside the courts and out. American Constitutionalism is a major achievement--a gold-standard teaching tool doubling as a penetrating account of the development of constitutional rights and liberties in America."--Ken I. Kersch, Boston College


"Through their innovative choice of sources and cogent historical framing, Gillman, Graber, and Whittington have made a groundbreaking and valuable contribution to the teaching of constitutional law. American Constitutionalism allows students to explore the content and historical context of landmark cases, the nature of constitutional change, and the role of judges, elected officials, and activists in shaping constitutional law. The book is accessible to a wide range of students, yet its primary source materials are varied and complex enough to engage even the most seasoned of scholars."--Emily Zackin, Hunter College, City University of New York


"This innovative text revolutionizes the teaching of American civil rights and liberties by presenting legal controversies over rights in their historical context. Students learn not only how rights work in the United States, but also how they have evolved over time, and how debates over rights have contributed to the development of the nation. The rich and varied documentary sources encourage students to think critically and creatively rather than memorizing doctrine by rote. A true gem for the instructor who wants students to grapple with core questions about how democracy has been articulated in the United States over time."--Julie Nokov, University at Albany, State University of New York


Congratulations to the authors on winning the APSA Law and Courts Section 2013 Teaching and Mentoring Award, for this "impressive, innovative, and outstanding" textbook. The Teaching and Mentoring Award recognizes innovative teaching and instructional methods and materials in law and courts.

Buy it if you need it for a class. Otherwise, avoid it -- notwithstanding the comprehensive aggregation of court cases, it's written at a high-school level.

Shipment was so fast! Very impressed. The book only has a few water stains on the bottom and hardly any highlighting. Great price for a good product.
