This course, the politics of civil liberties, introduces students to a uniquely American contribution (one that other western democracies have freely emulated) to the practice of politics: the written specification of
liberties and rights that citizens possess against the state. Civil liberties is not, however, a course on law. It is instead a course in political science that has as its subject the relationship of law to some of the
most fundamental questions of politics. Topics covered will include privacy, due process, equal protection, freedom of expression, and freedom of religion.
Hamilton et al., THE FEDERALIST PAPERS
Kommers, Finn & Jacobsohn, AMERICAN CONSTITUITIONAL LAW
