Taking the reader up to and through such controversial recent Supreme Court decisions as the Texas sodomy case and the University of Michigan affirmative action cases, Charles Fried sets out to make sense of the main topics of constitutional law: the nature of doctrine, federalism, separation of powers, freedom of expression, religion, liberty and equality. This book fills the need for an account of constitutional law free from legal jargon and clear enough to inform the educated layperson, yet which does not condescend or slight critical nuance.
