Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Despite my enthusiasm for this text, I have to warn general readers that this is a legal treatise on a complex legal and Constitutional subject. If you want something that makes simple claims for the Constitution and sees clearly what a hundred years and more of members of Congress, Supreme Court Justices, Presidents, and others have not, this is not the book for you.

If you want to understand the shifting relationship between the states rights and federal domination and how the other branches of government have shifted to try and dampen new interpretations and claims of Federal Power by the others, I think you will find this quite fascinating.

However, since this is written for professionals at a high level, those of us who are not lawyers or actual Constitutional scholars, well, we have some work to do as we read our way through. A large number of cases are cited and while you don't have to necessarily look them up somehow, you need to pay attention to the names so when they get cited again you can understand the shift of interpretation that has taken place.

While you will likely start the book with a strong belief in one interpretation of the balance discussed here, I doubt you will finish believing exactly the same way as you began. You will certainly also get a good lesson on the legal philosophies that have been proposed, attempted to take the national stage, and their lingering influence (for good or ill).

A valuable book.
