Just as good as the previous edition,
This review is from: Constitutional Law: Principles And Policies (Introduction to Law Series) (Paperback)
This adds a lot of material that has been covered by the Supreme Court in the interim period between the current publication and that of the second edition (2002). All of the praise from the prior edition can be properly bestowed upon this one as well; it essentially consists of the same material with the new cases inserted. Also, prior language that mused about the direction that a particular issue would take in the coming years have been resolved in some instances, so those parts have been replaced with Chemerinsky's excellent chronological and ideological thread of cases, up to the end of the last Court session. This book, more clearly than most, gives the average (and below-average) law student an easy-to-follow guide through the maze that is the first year Constitutional law course. A great help, and a necessary purchase.
