This is the new edition of a political science textbook first published in 1949 and retains the format of examining the foundational political document of the United States article-by-article and amendment-by-amendment. Case material is included in a descriptive format (as opposed to simple excerpts of rulings) and incorporates material that has occurred since the 15th edition was published in 2000, including the contested presidential election of 2000 and the impact of the September 11, 2001 attacks and the government's response.
