Publisher: Penguin Books

Format: Paperback

In time for the upcoming election season, Penguin presents a series of six portable, accessible, and—above all—essential reads from American political history, selected by leading scholars. Series editor Richard Beeman, author of “The Penguin Guide to the U.S. Constitution,” draws together the great texts of American civic life, including the founding documents, pivotal historical speeches, and important Supreme Court decisions, to create a timely and informative mini-library of perennially vital issues.The Supreme Court is one of America's leading expositors of and participants in debates about American values. Legal expert Jay M. Feinman introduces and selects some of the most important “Supreme Court Decisions” of all time, which touch on the very foundations of American society. These cases cover a vast array of issues, from the powers of government and freedom of speech to freedom of religion and civil liberties. Feinman offers commentary on each case and excerpts from the opinions of the Justices that show the range of debate in the Supreme Court and its importance to civil society. Among the cases included will be “Marbury v. Madison,” on the supremacy of the Constitution and the power of judicial review; “U.S. v. Nixon,” on separation of powers; and “Hamdi v. Rumsfeld,” a post-9/11 case on presidential power and due process.
