In the wake of the 2000 American election, the relationship between the Supreme Court and the American states has become more important. Once derided by the Court as a ""truism"", the Tenth Amendment has in recent years been transformed from a neglected provision into a vital ""first principle"". As such, it has provided the foundation for a series of decisions in which the Supreme Court has elevated the status of the states, often at the expense of federal power and in the face of previously settled assumptions.;In this volume. four prominent scholars - two historians and two law professors - examine carefully one of the central tenets in the Court's recent Tenth Amendment jurisprudence: the assumption that the results fashioned by a narrow majority are compelled by history and consistent with the intentions of the framers. They shed new light on a series of decisions that mark a major change in the thinking about the nature of a constitutional system within which both the federal government and the states properly regard themselves as sovereign entities.
