Article 1, Section 10 contains the most significant limits on state
power found in the main text of the U.S. Constitution. Chief
Justice John Marshall, perhaps the most important Justice in U.S.
history, used this provision a number of times in a number of
significant decisions to limit state power. These decisions
effectively enhanced the power of our new federalist form of
government. This book delves into the modern issues pertaining to
state limitations by tracing its history and looking at today's
most important factors. This work makes a valuable contribution to
the understanding of the U.S. Constitution by detailing the most
significant limits on state power. The many provisions studied in
the book provide insights into the various aspects of
constitutional interpretation. Coverage includes: ex post facto
laws; prohibition against bills of attainder; the import export
clause; the Dormant Commerce Clause; and limits on a state's
ability to retroactively impair contracts.
