This book on the Supreme Court during the Chief Justiceship of Edward Douglass White (1910-21) covers an important aspect of American history during the Progressive Era. This was a time when the role of the Supreme Court was debated with a passion rarely exceeded in our history. In its constitutional, antitrust, regulatory, and race-relations decisions, the Supreme Court found itself at the heart of the most important economic and political questions of the day. This was a time when some of the most brilliant jurists in American history sat on the Court: Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.; Louis D. Brandeis; and Charles Evans Hughes, to name a few. This book sets the Supreme Court in the midst of the political, economic, and social turmoil of one of the most important periods of American history.

Author Biography - Alexander M. Bickel

Alexander M. Bickel (d. 1974) was one of the foremost historians of the United States Supreme Court and the Constitution. A native of Romania, Bickel graduated from Harvard with honors and then worked on the U.S. Supreme Court as law clerk to Justice Felix Frankfurter. Bickel was a frequent contributor to Commentary, The New Republic, and the New York Times, and published extensively on constitutionalism, Burkean thought, citizenship, and the freedom of speech. Bickel taught as a professor at Yale Law School from 1956 until his death in 1974. Benno Schmidt is a leading scholar of the First Amendment, the history of race relations in American law, and the history of the Supreme Court. A graduate of Yale College and Yale Law School, Schmidt was President of Yale University from 1986-92. Schmidt served as law clerk to Chief Justice Earl Warren and began his academic career at Columbia Law School in 1969. In 1973, he became one of the youngest tenured professors in the university's history, and served as the Dean of Columbia Law School before his presidency at Yale. He now also serves as Chairman of the Council on Aid to Education, of the Board of Trustees of the City University of New York, and of Edison Schools.
