About the Book

This book will be the first published compilation of legal and scholarly materials intended for use in a range of courses on the foundational and ever timely subject of federalism.


  • Considers federalism questions across subject areas, transcending lines drawn by courses such as Constitutional Law, Federal Courts, Civil Procedure—and thus enabling fuller and richer treatment of the subject of federalism.
  • Includes primary historical and theoretical sources relating to legal development and enduring questions, enriching understanding of constitutional doctrine and fostering interdisciplinary learning.
  • Presents foundational materials useful for a range of courses on federalism, including Federalism, Federalism History, Federalism Theory, Comparative Federalism, and many others—as well as Constitutional Law courses that seek to expand treatment of federalism beyond typical bounds.
