About this Item

ISBN-13: 9781584777700; ISBN-10: 1584777702. "The Evil Ways" of a "Noisy Majority" Meigs, William M. The Relation of the Judiciary to the Constitution. New York: Neale Pub. Co., 1919. 248 pp. Reprinted 2007 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781584777700; ISBN-10: 1584777702. Hardcover. New. $95. * Reprint of the only edition. Meigs [1852-1929] established his reputation with pioneering research on the antecedents of the American doctrine of judicial review. Much of his later work traced the doctrine's subsequent history. The Relation of the Judiciary and the Constitution is a summary of this scholarship, as well as a summary of work by other scholars who developed areas uncovered by his research. Although it is primarily a history, Meigs's study has a secondary agenda: to show how "the noisy minority" of an unchecked judiciary "lead[s] the country.to launch out on evil ways" (10). In this regard he anticipated the viewpoint of conservative critics today who denounce judges who "legislate from the bench.". Bookseller Inventory # 47165
