9780521848206: The History of the Supreme Court of the United States, Vol. 12: The Birth of the Modern Constitution: The United States Supreme Court, 1941-1953 ... Court of the United States) (Volume 12)

1941-1953 marked the emergence of legal liberalism, in the divergent activist efforts of Hugo Black, William O. Douglas, Frank Murphy, and Wiley Rutledge. The war and early Cold War years of the Court in reality marked the birth of the constitutional order that dominated American public law in the later twentieth century. That legal outlook emphasized judicial concern for civil rights, civil liberties, and reaction to the emergent national security state. This book recounts the history of United States Supreme Court in the momentous yet usually overlooked years between the constitutional revolution that occurred in the 1930s and Warren-Court judicial activism in the 1950s.

Book Description:

This is a history of the United States Supreme Court between 1941 and 1953. Its principal objective is to explain the major issues facing the Court in mid-century to a general audience that includes lawyers but is aimed at a wider readership. These issues include Japanese-American internment during the war, the rights of African-Americans as the old order of Jim Crow disintegrated, the definition of religious freedom, the separation of church and state, and protection for speech freedom amidst national anxieties spawned by global war and Cold War rivalries.

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Birth of the Modern Constitution recounts the history of the United States Supreme Court in the momentous yet usually overlooked years between the constitutional revolution in the 1930s and Warren-Court judicial activism in the 1950s. 1941-1953 marked the emergence of legal liberalism, in the divergent activist efforts of Hugo Black, William O. Douglas, Frank Murphy, and Wiley Rutledge. The Stone/Vinson Courts consolidated the revolutionary accomplishments of the New Deal and affirmed the repudiation of classical legal thought, but proved unable to provide a substitute for that powerful legitimating explanatory paradigm of law. Hence the period bracketed by the dramatic moments of 1937 and 1954, written off as a forgotten time of failure and futility, was in reality the first phase of modern struggles to define the constitutional order that will dominate the twenty-first century.
