The concept of an "evolving constitution" is discussed in Jethron Lieberman's book A Practical Companion to the Constitution: How the Supreme Court Has Ruled on Issues from Abortion to Zoning

A reviewer wrote:

  • The book effectively illustrates the manner in which changing economic and social conditions can frequently alter the way the Supreme Court interprets an issue. For example, evolving attitudes of the Court are evidenced by the change from the separate-but-equal doctrine of Plessy v. Ferguson (1896) to the separate-is-inherently-unequal doctrine of Brown v. Board of Education (1954). [1]
