More than fifty years and fourteen previous editions of continuous use have established the value of this volume. This value is tied to the gravity of the subject it treats. American constitutional law is as important and exciting as the dream of constitutional government. In addition to its intellectual appeal, constitutional law has practical consequences. Because the United States has a written constitution enforceable in courts, citizens find that guarantees of political participation and basic rights are realities rather than mere aspirations. Like many important subjects, the study of constitutional law can be difficult. Undergraduates in political science and history often find constitutional law to be among the more demanding studies that they encounter within the social sciences. Similarly, law students generally find classes on constitutional law to be at least as challenging as classes on torts or contracts. There are a variety of reasons for this. Although cases involving civil rights and liberties are often quite engaging and contemporary, cases involving judicial review and jurisdiction, separation of powers, federalism, congressional powers under the commerce and taxing clauses, and the like (typically the staple of first semester courses on U.S. constitutional law) may seem quite arcane. Moreover, the Supreme Court has a long history, and important cases frequently originate from earlier centuries. Such cases often focus on technical questions about issues that are not exactly in today’s headlines or that are not generally understood. Few students who begin constitutional law understand, for example, that most rights in the first ten amendments are applied to the states not directly, but via the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment (see chapter 8 on the Bill of Rights and its application to the states). In addition to changes that have occurred in political circumstances and ordinary terminology during such time periods, cases often come complete with their Preface to the Fifteenth Edition own language of “legalese,” as recognized by the inclusion of a glossary of legal terms at the end of this volume.
