              Our Republican Constitution: Securing the Liberty and Sovereignty of We the People (EPUB ebook)

              By Barnett, Randy E.

              A concise history of the long struggle between two fundamentally opposing constitutional traditions, from one of the nation's leading constitutional scholars-a manifesto for renewing our constitutional republic.The Constitution of the United States begins with the words: "We the ...People." But from the earliest days of the American republic, there have been two competing notions of "the People," which lead to two very different visions of the Constitution.Those who view "We the People" collectively think popular sovereignty resides in the people as a group, which leads them to favor a "democratic" constitution that allows the "will of the people" to be expressed by majority rule. In contrast, those who think popular sovereignty resides in the people as individuals contend that a "republican" constitution is needed to secure the pre-existing inalienable rights of "We the People," each and every one, against abuses by the majority.In Our Republican Constitution, renowned legal scholar Randy E. Barnett tells the fascinating story of how this debate arose shortly after the Revolution, leading to the adoption of a new and innovative "republican" constitution; and how the struggle over slavery led to its completion by a newly formed Republican Party. Yet soon thereafter, progressive academics and activists urged the courts to remake our Republican Constitution into a democratic one by ignoring key passes of its text. Eventually, the courts complied.Drawing from his deep knowledge of constitutional law and history, as well as his experience litigating on behalf of medical marijuana and against Obamacare, Barnett explains why "We the People" would greatly benefit from the renewal of our Republican Constitution, and how this can be accomplished in the courts and the political arena.

              Constitutional Rights: Cases in Context (EPUB ebook – 2nd edition)

              By Barnett, Randy E.; Blackman, Josh

              Constitutional Rights: Cases in Context, Second Edition places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed since the Founding, its key foundational principles, and recurring debates. By providing both cases and context, it conveys the competing narratives that all la...wyers ought to know and all constitutional practitioners need to know. Teachable, manageable, class-sized chunks of material are suited to one-semester courses or reduced credit configurations. Generous case excerpts make the text flexible for most courses. Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Innovative study guide questions presented before each case help students focus on the salient issues, challenging them to consider the court's opinions from various perspectives, and suggesting comparisons or connections with other cases. Key Benefits: Revised doctrinal areas with newer cases. Updated background contextual material to reflect current scholarship. A highly accessible and engaging structure that examines the competing narratives that pervade the development of American constitutional law since the founding. Related cases are grouped together into "assignments" and make for a reasonable amount of reading for each topic. A wealth of photographs, maps, and primary documents to bring the cases to life.

              Constitutional Structure: Cases in Context (EPUB ebook)

              By Barnett, Randy E.; Katz, Howard E.

              Constitutional Structure: Cases in Context places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed, its foundational principles, and recurring debates, rather than focusing simply on doctrinal details. Teachable, manageable, class-sized chunks of material are suited to on...e-semester courses or reduced credit configurations. Generous case excerpts make the text flexible for most courses, no matter the ideology or interpretative method. Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Providing additional context, the readings are long enough to help students understand the arguments, and edited where necessary to prevent overwhelming them. Constitutional Structure: Cases in Context represents rival interpretations of the Constitution by founders, presidents, and other critics of the Court's decisions better than do many other casebooks. Boxed study guide questions help students focus on the salient issues, challenge them to consider the court's opinions from various perspectives, suggest comparisons or connections with other cases, and invite the student to think about recurring foundational principles and debates. The two-color design also features an art program. Constitutional Structure: Cases in Context covers Parts I and II of the parent book, Constitutional Law: Cases in Context, and can be taught in its entirety in one-semester courses.

              Constitutional Law: Cases in Context, 2nd Edition (EPUB ebook – 2nd edition)

              By Barnett, Randy E.; Katz, Howard E.

              Constitutional Law: Cases in Context places primary emphasis on how constitutional law has developed, its foundational principles, and recurring debates, rather than focusing simply on doctrinal details. Teachable, manageable, class-sized chunks of material are suited to one-seme...ster courses or reduced credit configurations. Generous case excerpts make the text flexible for most courses, no matter the ideology or interpretative method. Unique, concise coverage of the dormant commerce clause material helps clarify this often murky area. This allows the introduction of discriminatory intent and effects concepts in a less charged setting than race or gender material. Cases are judiciously supplemented with background readings from various sources. Providing additional context, the readings are long enough to help students understand the arguments, and edited where necessary to prevent overwhelming them. Constitutional Law: Cases in Context represents rival interpretations of the Constitution by founders, Presidents, and other critics of the Court's decisions better than do many other casebooks. Study guide questions help students focus on the salient issues, challenge them to consider the court's opinions from various perspectives, suggest comparisons or connections with other cases, and invite the student to think about recurring foundational principles and debates. The Second Edition welcomes Howard E. Katz, of Elon University and co-author of "Strategies and Techniques of Law School Teaching: A Primer for New (and Not So New) Professors." Greatly reduced and more tightly edited introductory material preserves and expands content while providing additional balance. The text is updated with the most recent cases throughout. A two-color design features an art program and boxed Study Guides, and the text is available in e-formats as well as print. The Second Edition is one of three volumes specifically tailored for the most common courses, replacing the common one-s
