His latest book is A New Introduction to American Constitutionalism (Oxford 2013), which comes out in September.
Graber is also one of three editors (with Keith Whittington and Howard Gillman) of American Constitutionalism: Structures and Powers and American Constitutionalism: Rights and Powers.
Graber is the author of scores of articles. His best known is "The Non-Majoritarian Problem: Legislative Deference to the Judiciary" in Studies in American Political Development.
He is presently working on a book, Forged in Failure, examining how much constitutional change in the United States has been caused by the failure of constitutional practices to function as expected.
