The literature on the United States Constitution and the Supreme Court of the United States would fill an entire library. What follows is a list of books which likely would be of interest to curious readers, both lawyers and nonlawyers alike, who want to learn more about the basic principles of the Constitution. Each book is listed only once, in the interest of space, so the careful user ought to peruse the entire list. Books marked with an asterisk ("*") are likely to be more accessible to more readers. The entries are arranged in eight broad and overlapping categories: CIVIL RIGHTS AND CIVIL LIBERTIES, CONSTITUTIONAL HISTORY, CONSTITUTIONAL LAW, CONSTITUTIONAL PHILOSOPHY, CONSTITUTIONAL POLITICS, SUPREME COURT BIOGRAPHY, SUPREME COURT CASES and SUPREME COURT HISTORY
