The purpose of this site is to provide a starting point for those interested in reading, contemplating, and/or researching the various forms of interpretation of the U.S. Constitution. The scope of the guide is represented in the pages (tabs). Of course much of the material will be by and about the judiciary, especially the U.S. Supreme Court, since they have such a prominant role in interpreting the Constitution. It is anticipated, however, that much more by way of analysis and discussion, will be included, so long as it is relevant to the topic. It will include both historic and contemporary material. Suggestions are welcomed, even if they are not always followed. SL
