The Bill of Rights: A Source Book.
Cohen, William; And Others
This volume contains source materials relating to the historical development of Constitutional rights and issues, and the current problems created by the application of the guarantees embodied in most of the important Constitutional provisions. Essentially a revision of the original California publication, its purpose is to "accommodate many of the problems encountered through teacher-use of that publication." The parts and sections are: 1) Judicial Review, the Fourteenth Amendment, and Federalism; 2) Equal Protection of the Laws; 3) Criminal Due Process; 4) Freedom of Expression; and, 5) Freedom of Religion. Four appendices are: 1) The Expanded Bill of Rights; 2) Selected References; 3) Table of Cases; and, 4) a 22 page subject index. The companion volume, SO 001 249, suggests various teaching strategies for implementing this source material. (Author/DJB)
