Professor Tribeâ€™s highly regarded treatise on constitutional law is organized around issues, or constitutional functions, rather than being a sequential discussion of the text to the Constitution. The text is heavily footnoted with references to treatises, law review articles, the U.S. Code, and Supreme Court cases. This edition will be published in two self-contained volumes to be released sequentially. Volume I concentrates on the Constitution's provisions for government structure and on how constitutional structure helps guarantee protection of substantive rights and liberties. Volume II will address in greater detail those substantive rights and liberties and the structure of the protections the Constitution provides for them.
