This text covers U.S. constitutional law by examining the balance of power between governmental power and the constitutional rights of individual citizens.

Part One examines the structure of the federal government of the United States, focusing on the core principles of separation of powers and federalism. U.S. Supreme Court Decisions on the structure and function of governmental institutions are cited and fully explained.

Part Two presents an overview of the constitutional rights of U.S. citizens. For ease of understanding, these are divided into liberty and equality rights. An analysis is made of how the Supreme Court has interpreted the Constitution to create a balance between individual liberty and the equality of all citizens.
