5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Nick on July 27, 2011
Format: Paperback
The author presents a thorough review of the liberty of contract jurisprudence, complete with historical context and underpinnings. The book is a dense read and probably best suited for someone not coming to the issue with a blank slate.

I enjoyed this book the first time I read it when it was published in substantially the same form by the Mercer Law Review. See David Mayer, Substantive Due Process Rediscovered: The Rise and Fall of Liberty of Contract, 60 Mercer L. Rev. 563 (2009), available at [...].

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on February 10, 2011
Format: Paperback
This book is not light reading, and it is definitely not a "page turner", but the information it conveys is indispensable in an age with unprecedented government encroachment on individual liberties. My only complaint is that it doesn't always lay out its arguments in easy to follow logic. Perhaps that is because I have been spared the mind-numbing experience called "Law School." I recommend it for someone who is serious about learning the history and philosophy behind our Constitutional protections of individual liberty of contract.

Format: Paperback
At what extent should the law dabble in our business affairs? "Liberty of Contract: Rediscovering a Lost Constitutional Right" discusses the increasing presence in government interference in economic liberty. David N. Mayer makes his case for remembering this constitutional right and why it must remain strong as we go deeper into the twenty first century. "Liberty of Contract" is a thoughtful and highly recommended pick for community library politics and economics collections.
