Short and Happy"? This book is indeed "short" - much shorter than any other student guide. The reason is that other student guides are written to help your students understand their business associations/organizations course, to get them through 42 or 56 class hours. This student guide is different. It is written to help your students understand final exam questions - to get them through a 3 of 4 hour exam. Rather than teaching students how cases and concepts are applied in the real world, this book teaches them how cases and concepts need to be applied in the "unreal" world of law school exams. This is the book to read after students have spent the semester working on law review (Or was it clinic? Or client counseling competitions? Or Kundalini yoga? Or shape note singing?) instead of Business Associations. Learn more about this series at ShortandHappyGuides.com.

Since the first publication of Modern Constitutional Law a third of a century ago, it has continued to be one of the best sellers in a very competitive market. Over the years, many law professors have adopted this user-friendly casebook - which is no surprise, given the rave reviews that this book has enjoyed. For example, Professor Thomas E. Baker stated that he has "been so loyal to the Rotunda brand name over the years," because it "remarkabl[y]" manages "to include all the important cases yet preserves a fuller set of opinions to guarantee 'thoughtful classroom discussion'." This Eleventh Edition incorporates the many changes in Constitutional law, such as new limits on the Commerce Clause and Spending Power, the Second Amendment, expanded Free Speech protections, and new limits on affirmative action, the President's executive power, and federal power to enforce voting rights. In addition to the 11th Edition Standard Version, Rotunda now offers an Abridged Edition, particularly appropriate for those professors offering a shorter course. This abridged version covers most of topics of the expanded version but does not include topics that a shorter course would not normally include.
