Our Rights

David J. Bodenhamer

  • An introduction to the rights held by American citizens under the U.S. Constitution as explored through a series of historical case studies.
  • Each chapter uses dramatic narrative to illustrate how the right applies today and how courts and other interpreters seek to balance this right with important societal concerns, such as the need for order and public safety.
  • Also discusses other rights that may evolve as a result of current political and social movements, such as the right to health care.
