This book is centered on the fifteen landmark cases as identified and required for students taking the College Board Advanced Placement® Government and Politics Exam. Reading U.S. Supreme Court cases can be a difficult task, especially in the limited time frame allotted to prepare for the exam. In keeping with the College Board’s admonition that students be able to read and understand the high-level language of primary sources, this book engages readers with the original language of the cases in a condensed form with the most integral pieces intact in order to prepare students for the complex thinking and analysis required for the course and the exam. More than simple summaries, these cases maintain the original language and include thought-provoking, challenging, questions to train readers to read like lawyers, not only for the exam, but for the rest of their lives as consumers of new and emerging case law.
