Understanding Constitutional Issues

Understanding Constitutional Issues
Selections from The CQ Researcher

June 2004 | 432 pages | CQ Press

Understanding Constitutional Issues discusses liberty and justice in contemporary America by exploring eighteen topics of relevance to students and citizens. The reports in this volume include several that won the American Bar Association's Silver Gavel Award in 2002 and touch on issues concerning criminal justice, race, privacy, religion, and politics and power.

With the in-depth, accurate, unbiased analysis that is the hallmark of The CQ Researcher, Understanding Constitutional Issues examines specific topics such as:

  • Civil Liberties
  • Death Penalty
  • Libraries and the Internet
  • Presidential Power
  • Privacy
  • Religion in the Workplace
  • School Vouchers
  • Single Sex Education
  • Three Strikes Laws

An overview of constitutional issues begins the volume. The reports are organized thematically, and each thematic section is introduced by an essay that updates and weaves the reports together. A table of cases, hints for writing term papers, and a full index round out the volume.

Perfect for undergraduate libraries, public libraries, and AP level schools.
