From the course syllabus for the Book Review assignment: To help you better understand the historical, legal, personal and constitutional contexts in which Supreme Court cases are decided in, you will write a book review on a case covered in the Landmark Law Cases and American Society series by the University Press of Kansas. I will post the link to the complete list of books in the series on Blackboard. After selecting your book, you will write a review of the book identifying the the facts of the case, its historical context, and its impact on society. Upon completing this assignment, you should have a better understanding of how a multiplicity of complex factors shape constitutional change in America.
