Understanding the United States Constitution

Every week brings to light new issues that challenge our views on questions we thought were long-since resolved.

This series examines issues such as freedom and its limits with regards to issues such as marriage and civil rights, immigration, gun ownership, privacy, abortion, taxation, and the separation of church and state. Readers are introduced to some of the controversies surrounding these issues with citations of legal briefs, judicial decisions, and court transcripts.
• Close but accessible readings of the Constitution and Amendments
• Historical reviews by courts, law enforcement, politicians, and the public
• Quotations and citations from primary source documents
