American Constitutional Law Vol 2 Civil Rights and Liberties by Otis H. Stephens and John M. Scheb pdf download. American constitutional law, to paraphrase Charles Evans Hughes, is what the Supreme Court says it is. But of course it is much more than that. Constitutional law is constantly informed by numerous actors’ understandings of the meaning of the United States Constitution. Lawyers, judges, politicians, academicians, and, of course, citizens all contribute to the dialogue that produces constitutional law.

Consequently, the Constitution remains a vital part of American public life, continuously woven into the fabric of our history, politics, and culture.

Volumes I and II of American Constitutional Law contain thirteen chapters covering the entire range of topics in constitutional law.

Each of the chapters includes an introductory essay providing the legal, historical, political, and cultural context of Supreme Court jurisprudence in a particular area of constitutional interpretation. Each introductory essay is followed by a set of edited Supreme Court decisions focusing on salient constitutional issues.

Accordingly, its political decisions are rendered in legal terms.

Because it is both a legal and a political institution, a complete understanding of the Court requires some knowledge of both law and politics. While political discourse is familiar to most college students, the legal world can seem rather bewildering. Terms such as habeas corpus, ex parte, subpoena duces tecum, and certiorari leave the impression that one must master an entirely new language just to know what is going on, much less achieve a sophisticated understanding.
