You simply can't find a better and more detailed description of the 20th century's two most murderous men.

Constitutional Law: Cases in Context--Civil Rights and Civil Liberties by James C. Foster, Susan M. Leeson
Paperback - 1312 pages Vol 002 (January 1998) Prentice Hall; ISBN: 0135687594
Order Today!
For anyone interested in our civil liberties, Constitutional Law covers a huge breadth of knowledge. Broken into four different eras, Foster and Leeson provide background information, each side's arguments, and the Justices' rulings for each case in the book. Some of the gems that are uncovered in Constitutional Law are: Freedom of Religion is not absolute (Reynolds v. US); a man does not have an inalienable right to be a butcher (The Slaughterhouse Cases); not saying the Pledge of Allegiance is detrimental to society and therefore illegal (Minersville District v. Gobitis), unless you are a Jehovah's witness (West Virginia State Board of Education v. Barnette); and the Creator dictates that the woman's place is in the home (Bradwell v. Illinois).
