The Fourteenth Amendment: From Political Principle to Judicial Doctrine

Cover
Harvard University Press, 1988 - 253 Seiten
In a remarkably fresh and historically grounded reinterpretation of the American Constitution, William Nelson argues that the fourteenth amendment was written to affirm the general public's long-standing rhetorical commitment to the principles of equality and individual rights on the one hand, and to the principle of local self-rule on the other.
