Editorial Reviews

Review


"American Constitutionalism marks a new age in the teaching of constitutional law. The book elegantly presents a historicized and developmental account that unveils the political and institutional roots of contemporary constitutional controversies. History and politics come alive for students as they engage constitutional problems as concrete political and legal struggles with stakes that span all American institutions, not just the courts. Ideal both for students who need basic background in US political history and students who are ready to move beyond the simple narratives they learned in secondary school, the text places major cases in their proper contexts through the integration of different types of primary sources. This helps students not just to understand the outcomes, but to see why they are important. After using this text, I can't imagine teaching constitutional law any other way."--Julie Novkov, University at Albany, State University of New York


"With the long-awaited publication of Gillman, Graber, and Whittington's American Constitutionalism, students can finally see vividly how American constitutional development has been shaped by a fascinating array of political actors--legislators, Presidents, and political party and social movement leaders--not just by courts. As a result, they can gain a much richer sense of American constitutional history, principles, and debates than most casebooks provide. A landmark contribution to the teaching and study of American constitutionalism."--Rogers M. Smith, University of Pennsylvania


"An important and refreshing challenge to the traditional case method of teaching constitutional law."--Jason Pierceson, University of Illinois Springfield

Format: Paperback
This is an ok book if you want a lengthy history lesson, but some chapters are poorly written and tend to drone on and one for far too long. Seems pretty disorganized and random at times. Unless you HAVE to buy this book, there are probably better ones out there.
