Book Review: Politics and the Constitution in the History of the United States, 62 Yale Law Journal 1137 (1953)


In the two volumes here under review we have a new and important contribution to the history of our Constitution. It is a work that cannot be disregarded, either by scholars and teaches of Constitutional law and government history or by the courts that must decide the cases that are continually arising in this field. Least of all can those afford to disregard it whose traditional opinions are flouted, whose political and judicial heroes are criticized, and whose local and sectional interests are deprived of their accustomed Constitutional support.
