Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0314265236, Paperback)

Designed for students in advanced courses and newly revised, this book explains the leading principles of federal jurisdiction. It includes such landmarks as Marbury v. Madison and Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents and the rules that govern original and appellate jurisdiction, justiciability and abstention, federal habeas corpus, and sovereign immunity. It discusses the enemy combatant cases, culminating in Boumediene, and recent Supreme Court decisions on such diverse issues as the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, federal ingredient jurisdiction, complete preemption removal, and supplemental jurisdiction. Perhaps most important, the book provides students with a sense of the argumentative possibilities available to lawyers and jurists working within the federal courts' tradition.
