The Constitution in the Supreme Court: The Second Century traces the development of the Supreme Court from Chief Justice Fuller (1888-1910) to the retirement of Chief Justice Burger (1969-1986). Currie argues that the Court's work in its second century revolved around two issues: the constitutionality of the regulatory and spending programs adopted to ameliorate the hardships caused by the Industrial Revolution and the need to protect civil rights and liberties. Organizing the cases around the tenure of specific chief justices, Currie distinguishes among the different methods of constitutional exegesis, analyzes the various techniques of opinion writing, and evaluates the legal performance of different Courts. "Elegant and readable. Whether you are in favor of judicial restraint or judicial activism, whatever your feelings about the Warren Court, or the Renquist Court, this is a book that justifies serious study."—Robert Stevens, New York Times Book Review

In the first book in a generation to offer a fresh interpretation of the Supreme Court during the pivotal tenure of Melville W. Fuller, James Ely provides a judicial biography of the man who led the court from 1888 until 1910 as well as a comprehensive and thoughtful analysis of the jurisprudence dispensed under his leadership. Highlighting Fuller's skills as a judicial administrator, Ely argues that a commitment to economic liberty, security of private property, limited government, and states' rights guided Fuller and his colleagues in their treatment of constitutional issues. Ely directly challenges the conventional idea that the Fuller Court adopted laissez-faire principles in order to serve the needs of business. Rather, Ely presents the Supreme Court's efforts to safeguard economic rights not as a single-minded devotion to corporate interests but as a fulfillment of the property-conscious values that shaped the constitution-making process in 1787.

Abraham Lincoln worried that the "walls" of the constitution would ultimately be leveled by the "silent artillery of time." His fears materialized with the 1913 ratification of the Seventeenth Amendment, which, by eliminating federalism's structural protection, altered the very nature and meaning of federalism. Ralph A. Rossum's provocative new book considers the forces unleashed by an amendment to install the direct election of U.S. Senators. Far from expecting federalism to be protected by an activist court, the Framers, Rossum argues, expected the constitutional structure, particularly the election of the Senate by state legislatures, to sustain it. In Federalism, the Supreme Court, and the Seventeenth Amendment Rossum challenges the fundamental jurisprudential assumptions about federalism. He also provides a powerful indictment of the controversial federalist decisions recently handed down by an activist U.S. Supreme Court seeking to fill the gap created by the Seventeenth Amendment's ratification and protect the original federal design. Rossum's masterful handling of the development of federalism restores the true significance to an amendment previously consigned to the footnotes of history. It demonstrates how the original federal design has been amended out of existence; the interests of states as states abandoned and federalism left unprotected, both structurally and democratically. It highlights the ultimate irony of constitutional democracy: that an amendment intended to promote democracy, even at the expense of federalism, has been undermined by an activist court intent on protecting federalism, at the expense of democracy.

Students, policy makers, lawyers, and researchers in many disciplines often require information pertaining to U.S. Supreme Court decisions. Janousek's new edition of this immensely valuable work will simplify the process of finding excerpts and commentary on every Supreme Court decision, as well as the texts, whether in government documents or reprinted in other sources, of the decisions themselves. This third volume in the series covers the literature from 1980 to 1995, indexing discussion and analysis in both monographs and periodicals of Court decisions from its earliest days. The volume is divided into five major parts: a bibliography of nearly 600 titles; a listing of over 300 periodical titles; a chronological list of the court decisions, each with a citation, a date, and a list of relevant secondary works; an alphabetical listing of parties involved in each case; and a subject index to the topics discussed in the various cases. Reviews of Previous Editions: _Quicker to use than either United States Reports or the United States Supreme Court Reports, lawyer's edition, this guide is especially recommended for undergraduate students of U.S. constitutional law. However, its clarity and excellent subject index make it useful for anyone interested in the U.S. Supreme Court cases covered in the guide._ _CHOICE _Not every library has, or indeed needs, a long run of the United States Supreme Court Reports, yet most libraries own anthologies of notable decisions. [This book] indexes not only these anthologies but also case discussions that appeared in books and periodicals--just the sort of information students often find more helpful and intelligible than the texts of the decisions themselves. It is impossible to overestimate this index's convenience value to students and laypersons.__WILSON LIBRARY BULLETIN
