The Judicial Power of the United States

The Eleventh Amendment in American History

John V. Orth

The Eleventh Amendment is one of the most obscure and sharply debated parts of the United States Constitution. The interpretation of this seeminly simple clause has troubled the Supreme Court at crucial periods in American history, and continues to excite sharp debate in the Court today. John V. Orth reconstructs the fascinating but little-known past of the Eleventh Amendment and connects it to pressing modern issues to provide new insight into the history of judicial interpretation.
