This is a monumentally frustrating constitutional law casebook that barely addresses critical precedents but bogs the students down with 20 pages of point-counterpoint-countercounterpoint law review articles that simply breed contempt for the subject. I used to love constitutional law, and still do in a broad sense, but this textbook has made the study of an interesting discipline miserable. The organization is also maddening with a brief excerpt of the case and then an "expanded discussion" somewhere else in the assignment.
Also this book is 1700 pages long and bound like a cheap bestseller. Its binding is already starting to break down after one semester of use and the pages do not lie flat. The pages are so thin that any highlighting will just bleed right on through the page.
Professors, please do not adopt this book.
