The reader should know, however, that the fifteen separate chapters do not add up to an overview of constitutional history or current constitutional law. In fact, several chapters deal with cases that are usually cited today as paradigms of BAD constitutional law (Plessy v. Ferguson and Lochner v. New York). The chapters are also of mixed quality. Some are outstanding (such as the ones on McCullough v. Maryland or the Oregon peyote case). Others, however, deal with ephemeral cases (such as Jones v. Clinton); at least one (on Roe v. Wade) is laughably one-sided; and one (on Dred Scott) seems more focused on attacking Robert Bork than on analyzing the details of the case (Bork is an easy target but he didn't need to figure so prominently in the discussion of a 19th century case).
With these caveats, I'd recommend the book to anyone interested in American constitutional law or history.
