American Constitutional History: A Brief Introduction

Published March 2016
By Jack Fruchtman ’61, Professor of Political Science at Towson University and the Director of the Program in Law and American Civilization.
From the book’s cover copy: Readers will gain a thorough grasp of America’s most treasured document as it has evolved through five distinct stages of U.S. history—the New Republic, the Slave Republic, the Free-Market Republic, the Social Welfare Republic, and the Contemporary Republic. The text is enhanced by brief chapter overviews of historic timeframes along with discussions of additional constitutional amendments. Reflecting the most up-to-date Supreme Court decisions at the close of the June 2015 term, American Constitutional History offers illuminating insights into the origins and evolution of the longest lasting written constitution in world history.
