"Patrick Keyzer has employed his intimate familiarity with the judicial considerations of the Constitution to develop a logical, integrated exposition of its provisions. The fields of operations of its several provisions, the cases in which they have been considered and the problems which they raise are clearly displayed. More importantly, the underlying principles and approaches which inform the ever-growing law of the Constitution have been examined."
