A March of Liberty: A Constitutional History of the United States, 2/e, is a clearly written, comprehensive overview of American constitutional development. The book is a lot less dry than it could be. Yes, the book is biased, but that can lead to interesting class discussion (or just plain thought), especially if one reads other essays/books on the subjects. I'm trying to imagine a better constitutional history textbook and I can't, though I will not claim to be an expert on history textbooks. At least this one gives plenty of information to understand the history that surrounds the Supreme Court cases.

A March of Liberty: A Constitutional History of the United States, 2/e, is a clearly written, comprehensive overview of American constitutional development. Covering the country's history from the founding of the English colonies up through the latest decisions of the Supreme Court, this two-volume work presents the most complete discussion of American constitutional history currently available. Reflecting the latest in contemporary scholarship, the authors successfully blend cases and court doctrines into the larger fabric of American political, economic, and social history. They discuss in detail the great cases handed down by the Supreme Court, showing how these cases played out in society and how constitutional growth parallels changes in American culture. In addition, this two-volume set examines lesser-known decisions that played important roles in affecting change, and also contains in-depth analyses of the intellects and personalities of the Supreme Court justices who made these influential decisions. This second edition of A March of Liberty addresses recent scholarship on race and gender, covers both constitutional and legal history, and examines federal, state, and private law. The text exemplifies the current trends in American constitutional history through its holistic approach of integrating the decisions of the state and lower federal courts with the decisions of the Supreme Court. Volume I covers the colonial period up through Reconstruction and explores central rulings on property law, religious freedom, slavery, and women's rights. It also examines the need for a governmental system of checks and balances, lesser-known rulings on land and water usage, and impeachment and treason trials. A March of Liberty, 2/e, features useful supplemental materials including the text of the Constitution, a chronological list of Supreme Court justices, and suggested further readings. Gracefully written and clearly explained, this popular two-volume set is indispensable for courses in American constitutional history and law.

I was assigned this book for a class in law school (legal history). I was surprised when I realized how biased and slanted it was. I have never read a textbook this biased before. Believe my shock at being assigned this. I also find that the authors skip over important parts of history that are at odds with their views. Just a poor poor book.

As far as history textbooks are concerned, I like this one. Yes, it's dense, but it's dense subject matter. The book is a lot less dry than it could be. Yes, the book is biased, but that can lead to interesting class discussion (or just plain thought), especially if one reads other essays/books on the subjects.

I'm trying to imagine a better constitutional history textbook and I can't, though I will not claim to be an expert on history textbooks. At least this one gives plenty of information to understand the history that surrounds the Supreme Court cases. Everything's nice, connected, and easy to understand--if a bit dense.

Avoid this book! It will kill your interest in US History. It is a bad attempt at summarizing the events which shaped the Constitution. While it made a good point at stressing the importance of our "British Heritage", especially when it comes to the legal system in our country, the author brought in too much of his own bias (as another reviewer has pointed out). I think the accompanying text to this book, Documents of American Constitutional and Legal History, is better. It at least lets you draw your own conclusions from original texts.
