Reviews a constitutional law hornbook by West Publishing Company. Written by three University of Illinois professors, the author believes that the hornbook falls short of designation as a reference tool. In search for brevity, the author points out topics that are almost excluded including: jurisdiction, conflicts of laws, and criminal procedure, as well as congressional power over admiralty, bankruptcy, and the like. Nonetheless, the author suggests that the hornbook is a valuable tool for a basic understanding of some important topics.
