The Constitution of the United States of America Book Review:

This is the second edition of Professor Tushnet's short critical introduction to the history and current meaning of the United States' Constitution. It is organised around wo themes: first, the US Constitution is old, short, and difficult to amend. Second, the Constitution creates a structure of political opportunities that allows political actors, icluding political parties, to pursue the preferred policy goals even to the point of altering the very structure of politics. Deploying these themes to examine the structure f the national government, federalism, judicial review, and individual rights, the book provides basic information about, and deeper insights into, the way he US constitutional system has developed and what it means today.

The Federalist Papers Book Review:

Classic Books Library presents this brand new edition of “The Federalist Papers”, a collection of separate essays and articles compiled in 1788 by Alexander Hamilton. Following the United States Declaration of Independence in 1776, the governing doctrines and policies of the States lacked cohesion. “The Federalist”, as it was previously known, was constructed by American statesman Alexander Hamilton, and was intended to catalyse the ratification of the United States Constitution. Hamilton recruited fellow statesmen James Madison Jr., and John Jay to write papers for the compendium, and the three are known as some of the Founding Fathers of the United States. Alexander Hamilton (c. 1755–1804) was an American lawyer, journalist and highly influential government official. He also served as a Senior Officer in the Army between 1799-1800 and founded the Federalist Party, the system that governed the nation’s finances. His contributions to the Constitution and leadership made a significant and lasting impact on the early development of the nation of the United States.

War Powers Under the Constitution of the United States Book Review:

Whiting, William. War Powers under the Constitution of the United States. Military Arrests, Reconstruction & Military Government. Also, Now First Published, War Claims of Aliens with Notes on the Acts of the Executives & Legislative Departments During Our Civil War & a Collection of Cases Decided in the National Courts. 1864. Tenth edition. Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1864. xvii, 342 pp. Reprinted 2002 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 99-049360. ISBN 1-58477-055-4. Cloth. $80. * Whiting's writings are widely believed to have profoundly affected President Lincoln's war actions. In Whiting's legal theories regarding war powers and the abolition of slavery espoused here Lincoln found justification for the Emancipation Proclamation, and the constitutional authority to abolish slavery. Simply stated, Whiting held that the abolition of slavery is constitutionally appropriate when viewed not as the objective end of the war, but as a means to end the rebellion in order to save the republic. His writing style was geared to the average reader, and this popular style, along with the tremendous influence of his writings led to the work going through 43 editions in less than a decade. This, the tenth edition is based on his earlier work, The War Powers of the President and the Legislative Powers of Congress, in Relation to Rebellion, Treason and Slavery (1862) which is thought to have been the work that originally brought Whiting to Lincoln's attention and led to his appointment as Solicitor of the War Department. This edition includes various unpublished sensitive documents that he handled in the course of that position.

The Declaration of Independence and Constitution of the United States Book Review:

The ideal introduction for students, aspiring citizens, and general readers to the documents that are as relevant today as when they were first drafted more than 200 years ago. In the years since their creation, the Declaration of Independence (1776) and the Constitution of the United States (1789) have come to be recognized as two of history’s most significant political documents. Yet, while they affect our everyday lives, too few of us are familiar with what they say. In this revised and updated edition, readers will find complete explanations of every section of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution—its Preamble, main body, and amendments—so that readers may fully understand what they meant to our forefathers and what they mean to us today.

Stimson, Frederick Jesup. The Law of the Federal and State Constitutions of the United States With a Chronological Study of Their Principles, a Chronological Table of English Social Legislation and A Comparative Digest of the Constitutions of the Forty-Six States. Boston: The Boston Book Company, 1908. xix, 386 pp. Reprint available July 2004 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. LCCN 2003053950. ISBN 1-58477-369-3. Cloth. $95. * Stimson wrote this study in response to the rapid development of constitution law that took place around the turn of the century, which he attributes to the social impact of modern industrial capitalism. He notes that the enormous volume of cases regarding "obligation of contract" and "commerce among the states" indicates a general shift in the field from cases dealing with the federal constitution or individual state constitutions to cases involving several constitutions. This book was conceived as a guide to this new terrain. It continues to be an excellent comparative study of the federal and state constitutions. It is more that a series of comparisons, however. As its title suggests, Stimson includes a history of the provisions in each constitution and their origins. "A Valuable piece of work...in the field of legal and constitutional investigation."

The Constitution of the United States Book Review:

A masterly introduction to the United States Constitution, this slim book leads the reader through a concise overview of the document's individual articles and amendments. With clear and accessible language, Currie then examines each of the three branches of the federal government and explains the relation between the federal and state governments. He analyzes those constitutional provisions that are designed to protect citizens from governmental interference, such as the due process and equal protection clauses and the confusing first amendment provisions respecting the separation of church and state, and includes discussions of judicial review and freedom of speech and of the press. A sympathetic yet critical guide, Currie's book enables students and laypersons to understand one of the cornerstones of the Western political tradition. The second edition, along with an updated chronology and bibliography, incorporates the Supreme Court decisions over the past decade that have affected constitutional interpretation. "Superb . . . highly recommended for those seeking a reliable, understandable, and useful introduction to our constitution."—Appellate Practice Journal and Update
