Zusammenfassung: Drawing on both political science and legal studies, Constitutional Law for a Changing America: Institutional Powers and Constraints, Eighth Edition helps students realize that Supreme Court cases are more than just legal names and citations. From lawyers and interest groups, to the shifting sentiments of public opinion, to the ideological and behavioral inclinations of the justices, Epstein and Walker show how all these dynamics play an integral part in the overall development of constitutional doctrine. As always, Epstein and Walker account for the most recent Supreme Court cases and the latest scholarship on the justices and their decisions. With meticulous updating throughout, the authors include reworked and revised discussion on: the methods of constitutional interpretation, jurisdiction stripping and standing, theories of presidential power, the separation-of-powers doctrine, cases related to the war on terrorism, federal preemption of state laws, and new developments in the interpretation of the commerce, taxing, and spending powers. In preparing this edition, Epstein and Walker reorganized chapters, sharpened the editing of case excerpts, and added supplementary material—all with the goal of enhancing student understanding of constitutional law and the judicial process.
