Documents of American Constitutional and Legal History: From the Founding to 1986 Volume 1
Documennts in American Constitutional and Legal History is a two-volume companion to Urofsky and Finkelman's March of Liberty. this Reader provides students with a mix of both frequently cited and lesser-known but equally important historical documents and court decisions that have shaped the nation's constitutional development, beginning with its colonization and extending to the latest decisions of the Supreme Court. Each volume is organised chronologically, and the authors have written an introduction to each document summarizing its significance and placing it in its historical context. Each document is also accompanied by a brief list of suggestions for further readings. In addition, the complete text of the U.S. Constitutions is contained in both volumes for easy reference, as is a list of U.S. Supreme Court judges and their tenures.
