Format: Hardcover
This book helps explain all of the amendments and is a good textbook for college. The only issue that I had with this book was that in the Second Amendment part of the book they state that no court has ruled in favor of individual rights vs. state rights. This was all changed with the District of Columbia v. Heller, 554 U.S. (2008) case. Where the Supreme Court held that the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects an individual's right to possess a firearm for private use. It was the first Supreme Court case in United States history to directly address whether the right to keep and bear arms is a right of individuals or a collective right that applies only to state-regulated militias. So essentially this changes one of the main points that the textbook was trying to make. Other than that I found the book to be quite interesting and a very easy read. I would recommend it to anybody that would like to learn more about the American Constitutional Laws. I just hope they update the book soon.
